Amazon Prime Video just launched in Canada

If the cold weather's got your down, you're probably looking to hibernate at home with snacks, blankets and a new show to binge watch. If you've exhausted your options on Netflix (you can only spend so much time in Stars Hollow), there's now a new video streaming service available in Toronto.

Amazon Prime Video finally launched in Canada. Some speculated it would be out earlier this month, but it finally arrived here - as well as in 200 other countries - overnight, as the Canadian Press reports.

While Amazon Prime ($79 per year) and its associated perks, like two-day shipping, have been in Canada for a while, Amazon Prime Video is new - you can try it out with a 30-day free trial.

It offers movies and TV shows, including original series like Mozart in the Jungle and Transparent, the latter of which used to be available on Shomi until that locally owned service went offline on November 30.
