Canadian TV viewers will soon have another streaming option on their plate. Amazon says it plans to make its Amazon Channels platform available “soon” in Canada as an add-on to its existing Prime Video subscription. The service will offer 12 channels of on-demand and live television that customers will be able to purchase on an a-la-carte basis. Many of them, including Nickelodeon and Super Channel, haven’t been available to stream in the past. The selection also features channels such as Starz and OutTV, but it’s missing some other popular pay-TV networks, including HBO Canada and Showtime. Also missing from the lineup are sports and news channels. Greg Hart, vice president of Amazon Prime Video, said he’s hopeful that voids in the offering will be filled over time.
