- Usually, streaming Canadian TV from abroad for personal use is legal, but remember to always respect each service provider’s terms of service.
How to Access Canadian Streaming Services, Network Websites, and Apps from Anywhere in the World?
Due to licensing agreements and copyright laws, most Canadian streaming services, network websites, and apps geographically limit their content. This is where a Virtual Private Network, or VPN, comes into play.
A VPN substitutes your IP address with one from a Canadian server, making Canadian streaming services believe you’re a local viewer. Consequently, you can access all your favorite Canadian shows and channels.
Follow these steps to watch Canadian TV from anywhere using Shellfire VPN:
- Download the Shellfire VPN software that’s compatible with your device.
- Install the Shellfire VPN software on your device.
- Open the application and select Canada as your target country and server location.
Can You Stream Canadian TV on Devices That Don’t Have Native Support for VPNs?
Yes, indeed! The Shellfire Box allows you to use the Shellfire VPN on any device, including those without native VPN support. The Box functions as a Plug & Play VPN router, enabling you to enjoy Canadian TV on your smart TV, gaming console, or even Apple TV.
Comparing Canadian and International Content Libraries
The digital entertainment landscapes vary significantly between Canada and other countries due to different licensing agreements. Here are some key differences:
Streaming Platforms: Netflix and Amazon Prime
Global platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime cater differently to Canadian and international audiences:
- Netflix: While Netflix operates globally, the Canadian version includes local shows like “Schitt’s Creek” and “Kim’s Convenience” that may not be available in other regions.
- Amazon Prime: Amazon Prime Canada features unique local content, such as “The Expanse” and “Vikings,” which isn’t typically accessible in other countries.
It’s important to note that we at Shellfire currently cannot guarantee the correct functioning of our service with Netflix due to potential changes in Netflix’s VPN detection and blocking mechanisms.
Canadian Sports Programming
Canadian broadcasts of sporting events, especially hockey games from the NHL, offer additional coverage, unique commentary, and special features not available in other countries.
Canadian Network Websites and Apps
Canadian network websites and apps, like CBC, CTV, and Global TV, offer exclusive content that’s typically inaccessible from outside Canada. Popular shows like “Schitt’s Creek” (CBC), “The Amazing Race Canada” (CTV), and “Big Brother Canada” (Global TV) are directly available on these platforms.
Here’s a handy reference table of some popular Canadian TV channels that offer online streaming, both free and paid. Remember, accessing some of these services might require a VPN if you’re streaming from outside Canada.

Is it Legal to Stream Canadian TV Abroad?
Yes, it’s generally legal to use a VPN to stream Canadian TV abroad for personal use. However, it’s important to adhere to each service provider’s terms of service as using a VPN might violate their user agreements, even if it’s not inherently illegal.
