  1. I think that both Crave TV and Shomi had to expect it would take a few years to grow. Netflix has had 6 years. It’s an expensive game to get into but it’s a necessary one. People are cord cutting because they are finding stuff for free online and getting free TV streaming devices. I’ve said it before, but the only thing keeping me from cordcutting is that I’m only allowed 20GB a month of data thanks to my only option of satellite internet and my desire to watch Winnipeg Jets and the Saskatchewan Roughriders and The Olympics. I’m actually thinking of moving to a nearby town that has unlimited internet access so I’m seriously considering it. If TSN releases an app of their own, I’d go with that for sure. Maybe TSN could somehow integrate with Crave TV. That would be an attractive feature, the ability to stream games. Crave TV with a TSN extra option. People would for sure go with it. I have Netflix Canada (I got tired of trying to keep switching it to Netflix U.S.) but truthfully, after having it for a while, you eventually watch most of what you want to watch on it, you need supplementary stuff so that’s why I had Shomi too. I actually subscribed to Shomi to watch a specific shows but stayed because I saw other shows I like. Crave TV has more shows I like though. I’m still waiting for it to be made available on Xbox Live …
