The CurrCon Java Applet displays prices on this web page converted with today’s exchange rates into your local international currency, e.g. Euros, US dollars, Canadian dollars, British Pounds, Indian Rupees… CurrCon requires an up-to-date browser and Java version 1.8, preferably 1.8.0_131. If you can’t see the prices in your local currency, Troubleshoot. Use Firefox for best results.


A Canadian Netflix competitor created by IAPs (Internet Access Providers) Shaw and Rogers. It will be revealed in 2014-11. It died soon after birth from competition with NetFlix. Shomi will be available on web (desktop computers), tablet (select iOS and Android), mobile (select iOS and Android), select Rogers and Shaw cable boxes (presumably that means ordinary HDTV (High Definition Television)) and Xbox 360 with more coming soon. It will cost $9.00 CAD per month. It will largely replace the current much more expensive pay per view services.
