    “The beta has been a huge success and we’re excited to now bring it to all Canadians. We’ve taken the time to work out the kinks so members can enjoy a great user interface and viewing experience,” said David Asch, Senior Vice President and General Manager, shomi. “We know more Canadians want the experience of an epic entertainment binge, and that they want the freedom to choose how they access the service. This exciting next step gives them that opportunity and we’re excited to share shomi with everyone.”
