Shomi Exclusives
They’re stepping up to compete with Netflix. This is a familiar refrain from those who have spoken about the new Shaw/Rogers backed streaming service called Shomi. Here in Canada we all knew something would come along to rival streaming services like the dominant Netflix.

Developments of the day sometimes take a little while to percolate to the top. Never more evident is in the case of online streaming company Netflix’s new series named House of Cards. If you haven’t heard of it – this is a U.S. version of a British miniseries (of the same name). In this version, Kevin Spacey plays Francis Underwood, a politician with a rising trajectory using any dirty tricks he has to for the sake of power. This sure does sound like an entertaining show, but there’s more to take interest of here. It seems like Netflix may be on the verge of changing the TV game.
