Best Websites to Watch TV Online for Free in Canada

One of the things I’m really jealous of all you Americans for (besides the state of California and your crazy cheap liquor prices) is the selection of websites you have to watch TV online for free. I mean you’ve got Hulu, NBC, ABC and HBO just to name a few, all the while us poor Canadians are denied access. Can’t you guys show some love to your neighbours to the north?

Well, it isn’t all bad I guess. We may not have those particular sites to watch TV online for free with, but there are still a number of great sites out there that allow us poor, humble Canadians to enjoy the same great shows without ever having to pay for cable.

MTV Canada

Don’t you dare tell me you’ve never watched at least one episode of Teen Mom or Jersey Shore. Fine, maybe I’m just talking about myself, but I feel no guilt watching these guilty pleasures because I ain’t paying a dime to do so.

    I’m not in Canada but watch tv shows online 100% of the time! I don’t even know why we have cable. We honestly just turn it on before we sleep, set the timer for 30 mins and use it to help us fall asleep haha.

      Watching TV online is becoming more and more convenient so it’s no surprise to find that people like us are beginning to prefer it over the TV set. My employer, DISH, even has a website for its customers to watch their shows. I love it because I can watch older episodes of my favorite shows and even movies. A lot of cable and satellite TV companies have similar sites here in the US. You should check with your cable company to see if they have anything like it.
