Games to stream and upload to Google Stadia and Xbox Game Pass [Jan. 18-24]

For almost two years, I have been putting together a weekly 'Streaming in Canada' column to highlight shows and movies that have just hit Canadian streaming services. That continues, and will continue, to get stronger, but while I've been doing it, I was wondering if a similar ongoing series might be worth it for video games. After all, there are a host of gaming-on-demand services on the market, including Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass, Google's Stadia, and Sony's PlayStation Now, and it can be difficult to keep up with new releases accordingly. And while there are a lot of general game release listings, I thought one focused on the industry's ever-growing services might be unique. Of course, not all of these gaming services are streaming specific, which is why the 'Streaming in Cana...

Here’s some of what’s coming to Apple TV + in 2021

Apple TV + is a bit different than most other streaming services on the market. While platforms like Netflix, Disney +, and Crave reveal full lists of what's coming to their services each month, Apple generally only makes release date announcements on a case-by-case basis. As a result, this can make it a bit difficult to keep up with when a show or movie hits Apple TV +, especially when the service's content deployment is slower than many of its peers. Given all that, we decided to take a look at what do know will be coming to Apple TV + throughout 2021 and round it up accordingly. The upcoming Apple TV + content list is especially worth noting if you're someone who has a one-year trial of the service through the purchase of an Apple device, as the tech giant now extends its free p...
