BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Stupid international licensing.
With that out of the way, here’s the news via National Post:
As previously reported, Netflix is set to revive the cult Fox television series Arrested Development, giving it a streaming-only deal of 10 episodes for 2013. But what of Canada? Do we get the exploits of Michael Bluth and company?
Steve Swasey, vice-president of Corporate Communications at Netflix, said Wednesday that “the return of Arrested Development exclusively on Netflix will be in the U.S. only.”
Apparently the much-awaited regeneration of Arrested Development has only been licensed for distribution by Netflix for their American audience. This, obviously, has a lot of Canadians going from this to this.
Does this drop the value of your Netfix.ca subscription? Have you seen the difference in the American offering? It’s a HUGE upgrade over what we get up here. We will keep you posted on any changes.
While we’d never suggest torrenting a show… we’ll just leave the rest of that to you.
