Decades of Canadian TV Legally Uploaded to Youtube: Degrassi, Due South, Slings & Arrows

Maybe not quite as popular as shows from the UK or USA, Canada has produced some classic television. Charming programs with fantastic casts and excellent writing. YouTube Channel Encore+ is working with several Canadian production and distribution companies to preserve some popular titles, making them freely available to all who want to watch. Personally, I’m excited to see an easy way to stream Slings & Arrows, since the wife and I are Shakespeare nerds, and this show is one of the truest (and funniest) representations of a life spent in theatre.

Other classics include Are You Afraid of the Dark, Due South, and Degrassi. Conveniently organized in playlists by show, Encore+ promises more to come. Shocking to see under 6000 subscribers at the time this post was written. Check out the link below for some excellent (and free) TV watching.
