Should Netflix Be Regulated as a Traditional Canadian Broadcaster?

Michel Kelly-Gagnon

The Internet being a global phenomenon, there is now an obvious discrepancy between the rules applying to Canadian broadcasters, and what companies like Netflix can "broadcast" in Canada through a website or an app. When certain companies are subject to restrictive regulation while some of their competitors are not, there are calls from the regulated companies for the same rules to apply to their competitors.

Bingeing is one of the more popular ways to watch TV these days. Might explain why I watched the entire second season of Orange Is the New Black in just two short days. Binge-watching is not all fun and games -- they don't call it a marathon for nothing. But I think it's the best way to watch TV, especially for a show you love. Here's why.
