Comments and queries for the week of August 28

Steven Sabados ends Steven and Chris

He will be truly missed. What a shame, with heartfelt condolences to Steven. —Janet

God Bless. You will be missed. —Rhonda

Going to miss Chris and his banter with Steven and others who happened to be in his sight. —Edith


What do you think of shomi?

Shomi’s main problem is that video streaming is bad on any device you use it on. Android buffers, web-based works a bit better and the set top interface is terrible, and many shows are SD only. Netflix and CraveTV have a better selection of shows too. —Luke

Steven Sabados ends CBC’s Steven and Chris

There will be no more Steven and Chris without Chris Hyndman: Steven Sabados made the announcement Friday afternoon on Facebook.

“I wanted to write and send a sincere thank you to everyone who has reached out and offered love, support, and words of encouragement over these past few weeks. 

As you can imagine, this has been an incredibly difficult time and I truly appreciate the compassion you’ve so generously offered.

Some of the best times in my life have been at the CBC — creating an incredible show with Christopher by my side and a fantastic team behind the scenes. That being said, it’s impossible for me to even imagine continuing the show without him. The CBC understands and supports my decision 100 per cent and I hope you can as well. 

To all of you who shared our fabulous journey over the last eight years, as Christopher would say, “Thank you, thank you, thank you.” 

Love, 
Steven”

The announcement comes weeks after the death of his on-air and real-life partner Hyndman was found without vital signs in an alleyway near the couple’s Toronto condominium. It’s believed he stepped off the terrace surrounding their condo while sleepwalking.

A native of Newfoundland, Hyndman teamed with Steven Sabados over 15 years ago to form The Sabados Group Inc.; the group specializes in event planning, product launches and set design.

On Steven and Chris, the couple—along with expert guests—offered a unique take on decor, beauty, health care, relationships, food and parenting. CBC’s media site notes Steven and Chris airs in more than 40 million households in the United States. Sabados and Hyndman starred in HGTV’s Designer Guys, Design Rivals and So Chic with Steven and Chris.

Steven Sabados issues statement following Chris Hyndman’s death

Steven Sabados issued a statement Friday regarding the passing of Chris Hyndman, his longtime partner and co-star on CBC’s Steven and Chris.

“I, our families and friends, wish to express our deepest gratitude for the overwhelming expressions of tenderness, love and tribute in honour of my beloved Christopher,” Sabados posted on the Steven and Chris Facebook page.

“Our hearts are broken, but we find comfort knowing his generous, larger-than-life spirit lives on.

From the moment I met Christopher, we went forward in life, side by side and shoulder to shoulder. He was my best friend, my confidante, my partner, my one love.

Over 27 years, we built a beautiful life together; always remembered, always cherished.

As we find our way through this difficult time, we are asking for privacy.

Thank you for your understanding.”

The message comes after Hyndman’s body was found Monday, Aug. 3, in an alleyway near the home he and Sabados shared in Toronto’s Queen St. and Broadview Ave. neighbourhood. It’s believed he was sleepwalking on the terrace of his penthouse apartment when the accident happened.
