Doesn't seem to be many good shows that aren't already on other platforms.

In - if only to support a Canadian icon. Hopefully this helps them get more funding to produce shows like Kim's Convenience and Little Mosque on the Prairie.

I've been a Premium member for a while so I can recommend the service. The main feature is that you get no ads (unlike the free version). For me, this is worth $5 a month. Beside the CBC offerings, they have series from other sources that never played on the tv network. Plus it lets you watch the News channel in case you don't have cable.

+1 I like supporting the CBC and I don't mind giving them $5 per month to continue making content.

Is CBC not free over the air?

Or just use the 'Try Free for 30 days' and get all the content ad-free for a month, before reverting back to all the content available with ads

Agreed -- supporting Canadian media is more or less what motivated me to sign up. And as a cord cutter, it's nice to have access to a news channel at a reasonable price (and that isn't dominated by U.S. politics).

I think this is the only place to get all seasons of Daniel Tiger's neighbourhood. Netflix and Crave only have a season or two each. Thanks OP.

The key to watching the US media channels is to realize what the Canadian media purposely misses or does not report, both at home and abroad.

Instead they focus on fluff-stories or feel-good snippets meant to fill airtime, that rightfully belong on truly local news outlets.

How is this Raspberry Pi setup different from a pure software setup readily available on all browsers and DNS services?
