(written from a Production point of view)
shomi is a Canadian subscription video streaming service launched in November 2014 by Rogers Communications. When it first launched, it required a subscription to a supported television provider to obtain access, but as of August 2015, it became available as a stand-alone service. It competes directly with similar streaming services such as Netflix and CraveTV.
shomi has both the The Original Series and The Next Generation available for streaming.
