Netflix Canada Increasing Prices For New Users and Soon Existing Members


Your “Netflix and Chill” habit is going to be increasing soon, and if you’re new to the streaming service, then the monthly fee increase of $1 (or $2 on the Premium plan) will be taking place immediately.

Netflix announced that Canadian users will be experiencing their first price bump in two years (the last one took place in October 2015) so that the service can “bolster its content and services”. There has been no mention that this price increase will affect other countries, more specifically the U.S.

It will now cost Canadians $8.99 for the basic plan (reg. $7.99/month), $10.99 for the standard plan (reg. $9.99) and the premium plan will see a $2 increase, as it will now cost $13.99/month rather than the $11.99/month that it was usually offered at.

In a statement, the streaming giant said that this price increase was a result of them introducing more product features and to “improve the overall Netflix experience.”

Netflix usually implements their price increases by country, as they respond to the local markets and the various demands for their service.

Disney Ending Deal With Netflix, Launching Own Streaming Service in 2019


Netflix Canada is taking a big hit this week. Disney has just announced that, as of 2019, they will no longer be allowing Netflix to use their content.

In a statement released on August 8th, 2017, Disney came forward and stated that instead of selling their content to be streamed on the internet’s streaming giant, they would be acquiring majority ownership of BAMTech, which would then launch their own Disney-branded direct-to-consumer streaming service.

The shows will of course remain on the server until 2019, when Disney intends to launch their own service. There has been no mention of when or if this service will become available in Canada, but I can only assume that it will be some time after it has been initially launched in the U.S.

As a word of caution for you Marvel fans who may be hyperventilating in fear that hit Netflix originals like Jessica Jones and Luke Cage may be leaving the server, you can rest easy.

In an article originally published with NPR, they reported that Netflix intends to keep up their global partnership with Disney, particularly where it concerns producing its exclusive Marvel shows:

“Netflix, which lately has been focusing on its own exclusive programing, said it would continue to do business with Disney globally, including keeping its exclusive shows from Marvel television.”

iPhone Glitter Gel Cases Recalled After Reports of Burns and Blisters


All that glitters is not gold, particularly for MixBins glittered iPhone cases, which have had 11,444 units recalled by the Government of Canada. The cases affected by this worldwide recall are liquid glitter iPhone 6, 6s and 7 cases that have been sold between October 2015 and June 2017 as there have been reports of these cases causing skin irritations, blisters and in extreme cases, burns.

In a statement from MixBin Electronics, the company that distributes these glittered phone cases to other businesses, they said:

“The cases are being recalled due to the risk of skin irritation, blisters or burns if the liquid contained in the phone case leaks and comes into contact with the skin due to breakage or cracking of the case.”

In addition to the 11,000 units that were sold in Canada, there were 263,000 glitter cases that were sold in the U.S. and about 400 in Mexico. The cases were sold in several stores across North America, including:

  • Amazon.com
  • GetMixBin.com
  • Henri Bendel stores and online at henribendel.com
  • Nordstrom Rack stores
  • Tory Burch stores
  • Victoria’s Secret stores in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, and online at victoriassecret.com

You can go online to MixBin’s statement to see pictures of the affected units and also read the full statement here.

If you have purchased one of these units you can contact MixBin toll-free at 855-215-4935 for your full refund.

Hunter Boots Opening First North American Location at Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre


The UK rainboots that have probably been pinned more times than any other pair on Pinterest fashion boards are now coming to find a physical and non-virtual home in Canada.

Hunter, a British company that is best known for creating high-fashion and functional wellies, has decided to make Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto their first official standalone store in Canada. The store will be opening up in October and will occupy a whopping 2,800 square feet.

With all that space, they will obviously be filling their shelves with more than just rainboots. Hunter’s Toronto store will feature indoor and outdoor apparel, as well as accessories for your rainboots that will make braving the wet and sometimes slushy Canadian fall and winter a bit more bearable and, more importantly, fashionable.

Cineplex Canada Partners With Topgolf To Add New Canadian Golf Entertainment Locations


Cineplex Canada is certainly reshaping the ways we understand and experience entertainment in the 21st century. They first moved beyond the movie theatre brand that they initially gained fame for by adding entertainment venues like the Rec Room to their repertoire, and they are now looking to expand their idea of entertainment venues by partnering with Topgolf to bring this American brand to Canada.

Topgolf, as the name more than suggests, is a venue that gives customers the chance to play interactive and indoor games of golf with groups of friends. They have yet to suggest where the locations in Canada will be, but we can safely assume that the GTA will be one of the places across the country to test out the pilot of this program.

Topgolf games use microchipped balls so that you can play against single players, play in groups or simply by yourself to work on target practise. There are restaurants and bars that you can eat and drink at while you play, plus large plasma screen TVs that decorate almost every inch of exposed and available wall.

Topgolf and Cineplex have yet to say when or where these locations will be going, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted as soon as we get word!

City of Toronto Canada Adding FREE Sunscreen Dispensers in Waterfront and Park Locations


In Canada, there are over 80,000 cases of skin cancer diagnosed each year and it is one of the most common types of cancer; if you were to combine all of the new cases of breast, lung, prostate and colon cancer, there would still be more new cases of skin cancer!

These statistics should hopefully encourage all of us to follow more safe sun practises more vigilantly, but there are times when you’re out longer in the day then you intended and the sun starts beating down and you can begin feeling your nose and forehead beginning to crisp. For those of us living in Toronto, you’ll be excited to hear about the launch of a pilot project that aims to help those of us caught out in the middle of a park or the waterfront with no extra UV protection.

Through the funds of the Douglas Melanoma Fund and the Douglas Wright Foundation, Toronto will be adding 6 free sunscreen dispensers to five different locations across the city. They include:

  • Kew Gardens Park,
  • Sherbourne Common,
  • Harbour Square Park,
  • HTO Park and
  • Little Norway Park

If you’re interested in learning more about the project, you can check out BeSunSafe.ca.

And for those of you not living near these free dispensers, or just generally looking to be more “Sun Safe”, here’s some tips from the Canadian Skin Cancer Foundation website:

  • keep out of the sun between 10am-4pm (or remain in the shade) or any time the UV Index is 3 or higher
  • wear loose-fitting, tightly woven and light weight clothing that covers exposed skin (e.g. legs and arms)
  • wear a wide-brim hat to protect head, face, neck and ears
  • stay in the shade
  • wear sunglasses with a UV protection of at least 400, block 99% of UVA and UVB
  • use sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher
  • apply sunscreen at least 20 minutes before going into the sun and reapply every 2-3 hours
  • also, reapply after swimming or perspiring
  • alternate application of bug sprays and sunscreen
  • reach under the edges of your clothing, the back of your neck, your ears and other places that are often missed or forgotten

Walmart Canada Drops Fee on Walmart Pickup and Penguin Pickup

To qualify for the grocery service, you’ll have to first spend above $50, which if you’re doing a big grocery store haul is an easy minimum to clear.
