Amazon has announced that their Amazon Music Unlimited streaming music service is now available in Canada. The service is available with a 90-day free trial. After that, Prime members will pay CDN $7.99 per month or CDN $79 per year, while non-Prime members will pay CDN $9.99 per month. Those prices are for individual plans, but Family plans for up to six household members are also available for CDN $14.99 per month or CDN $149 per year. The plan options don’t stop there because there is also a CDN $3.99 per month plan that can only be streamed from a single Echo device and a CDN $4.99 per month plan that is only available to students. Amazon Music Unlimited offers multiple millions of songs, versus Prime Music, which only offers a little over 1 million songs.
It appears as though Canada will soon see the release of their first Fire TV EDition televisions.

Both the 4K UHD televisions and the newer non-UHD Canadian variants are present on Toshiba’s website, which is a good indication that these TVs will soon be released. Read more ›
