NBCU first announced earlier this year that it planned to make Canada Hayu’s eighth launch market.

“We’re thrilled to now be delivering the innovative all-reality SVOD service – Hayu – in Canada,” said Hendrik McDermott, senior vice-president, branded on-demand, NBCUniversal International. 

“The proven healthy appetite for reality programming amongst Canadian viewers is reinforced by early enthusiasm for Hayu, with thousands already bingeing on multiple favourite shows – and we are excited to build momentum with Canadian subscribers.”
