Netflix Canada: What's Good In April?


After what seemed like an endless winter, the snow is finally melting and the mercury is rising -- slowly. Thank goodness we have Netflix Canada to accompany us into spring!

April looks like a killer month for new streaming content, not the least of which is the most Canadian offering of all: Seasons 1 - 7 of "Trailer Park Boys," now available for your watching pleasure. Additionally, you can watch the Boys in their first full-length feature film, "Trailer Park Boys: The Movie." If you want something a little more violent, the aggressive "Rambo" movies (the first three, at least) are now streaming. If you're anticipating the "Mad Men" Season 7 premiere in mid-April, make sure to refresh or catch up on Seasons 1 - 5. (Season 6 to come.) Of course, there is a lot more to choose from.

HuffPost Canada and Netflix Canada have teamed up to provide you with our best suggestions for new arrivals, long-time favourites and titles coming soon. Stop shuffling aimlessly through Netflix's library, and just take our word for it.
