The Ultimate Guides
After our list for the best movies on Netflix Canada, we've made this one for Amazon Prime Canada. Both tap into the same database of highly-rated and little-known movies - the agoodmovietowatch database.
Below is the list of the best movies on Canadian Tubi. If you don't know this platform, it's a completely free streaming service. It's like Netflix, except without having to pay or even register.P.S. We are not affiliated with Tubi. This is an independent list.
Notable TV shows on Netflix Canada are not limited to stuff that's produced by Netflix itself. Luther, Happy Valley and People Just Do Nothing are great examples of this. They're originally from the BBC, but are available to stream in Canada. Same with Flowers, the incredible yet little-known TV show with Olivia Colman, Outlander, and many other picks from this list of the very best little-binged TV shows on Canadian Netflix.
agoodmovietowatch is a database of highly-rated movies. Because of this, we know that while Netflix US may have a larger catalog of titles, Netflix Canada actually has a larger catalog of good titles. Our latest count shows that we have 149 good movies for Netflix Canada, and only 120 for Netflix US (to find all the movies we suggest for Canada go back to the homepage and use the region selector in the top bar to choose your country). When you end up on a list like this, you must be accustomed with the confusion and frustration that come with browsing Netflix aimlessly. From our research, this is caused by two things. First, something called the paradox of choice, where the larger the options you have to choose from the harder it is to choose. Second, recommendation algorithms. A while ago Netflix removed their ratings and replaced them with match percentages. What this means is that if you watched a cop movie, you will have a 100% match record with other cop movies, good or bad. Our solution to both issues is a simple website that has a very limited selection of only good titles. We know they're good because they're loved by both critics and viewers at the same time. Below is a list of the best ones currently on Netflix Canada as rated by our users. When you're done with this list, we highly recommend checking out the 40 Best TV Shows on Netflix Canada You Haven’t Yet Binged.
