The CRTC isn't the culprit, it's the fact that somebody in Canada purchased broadcast rights and either Netflix isn't interested in pursuing contracts for those in such a small market, or the cable companies don't want to play ball.

It'd be easy to lay all of the blame at the feet of the cable companies, but then I look at the fact that we don't have a full fledged subscription music service in Canada and suspect the size of the market has a lot to do with it as well.
