Shomi nothing!

So, now that Shomi is shutting down operations in Canada by the end of November, how are Canadians going to get access to all of the shows that were exclusive to that service?

How will viewers get access to seasons of shows like Mr Robot, Transparent, It's always sunny in Philadelphia, etc.?

Do the licenses Shomi bought prevent anyone else from adopting those shows? Since the only streaming services available to Canadians are CraveTV and Netflix, we can't get access to the shows on Amazon, or Hulu, or HBO Go.

So now what? CRTC, are you listening? Do you see how protectionism affects consumers?
