U.S. Netflix is adding a bunch of Black sitcoms and Canadians are so jealous
Netflix is adding a bunch of Black sitcoms to the platform but they won't be available in Canada — much to the chagrin and disappointment of Canadians across the country.
Americans will soon be able to watch seven classic TV shows featuring strong Black leads on the streaming platform, including Moesha, Sister Sister and Girlfriends.
Canadians, meanwhile, will be left to look longingly south, ruminating on TV licensing laws and how unfair it is to live north of the border sometimes.
I’m for all of this please bring it to Canadian Netflix I beg you!!🥺🥺 https://t.co/eaTjlQbCSP— Liban (@liban38) July 29, 2020
"Between Canadian Netflix, Canadian SNKRS, Canadian Amazon ... why do we always get limited EVERYTHING?" one person wrote. "You'd think we are a country in the middle of nowhere."
"Netflix Canada better," another person wrote. "Black People exist in Canada."
"I really need Canadian Netflix to fix up asap," yet another person wrote.

"Canadian, here, adding to those requesting this content on Netflix CANADA," a fourth person chimed in. "We need and appreciate Black content north of the border."
Unlike Netflix UK and Ireland, Netflix Canada has yet to say outright that the shows won't be available in our country — so there's still some hope that we could be watching Sister Sister this autumn.
Freshdaily reached out to Netflix Canada for a comment but did not hear back.
