Willionaire$, it’s been a thrilling run and a great blast sharing some important tips these last few weeks for a zombie to survive a human world. We hope you learned some practical and handy tips you can apply to your own lives and that you’ve embraced your own inner-zombie!
See our final installment of The Zombie’s Guide, Chapter 6.4 right here:
Let’s face it, being a zombie in a human world is tough, that’s why the new series iZombie from the “brains” behind Veronica Mars, truly hits home with me. Many of us at some point in our lives have felt a bit like an outsider and the show touches upon that sentiment through the eyes of engaged medical resident Liv (Rose McIver) whom after attending a party one fateful night, turns into a zombie. Her entire world is turned upside down as she’s forced to cope with her new fate.
Catch a sneak peek here:
We’re thrilled to partner withshomito let you in on one of our favourite new TV series. Rogers and Shaw customers can now stream iZombie on shomi through their cable boxes, computers, tablets, smartphones and streaming devices, but in the summer shomi is coming to all Canadians.
Over the next three weeks, through our social media channels, we’re gonna get ZOMBIFIED with tips for zombies on how to thrive in this world, in celebration of iZombie! Things just might get a little quirky around here, but we have a feeling you haven’t been following us this long because we were “normal” anyhow!
See a lil’ clip of me talking about it!

The buzz certainly is there for proudly-Canadian Streaming Service shomi. A collaboration of efforts between Multimedia Giants SHAW and ROGERS, the Service will be rolled-out to the Set-Top Boxes and Streaming Devices (Apple and Android Tablets and Smartphones) this Fall, with their eyes set on the success which Key Player Netflix has achieved across homes in North America.
We and a select Group of Key Influencers in the Canadian Market, had the opportunity to hear directly from shomi‘s Marni Shulman and Marc Dinsdale who play a pivotal role in its launch at an exclusive Event at Toronto’s only five-star Hotel, The Hazelton. We learned about the virtues of the Service, which is being touted as being “created for Entertainment Lovers, by Entertainment Lovers”. It is the product of two things we learned: Algorithms based on Viewer habits and also the Human Touch.
The Service capitalizes on the phenomenon of Bingewatching, currently taking the World by storm, focusing on multi-season, “bingeworthy“-based Content. Shulman says, “shomi is focusing on edgy, immersive content with deep character”. “80% of our content is Series, 19% is Movies and the other 1% will be Concerts and original produced content.”.
That being said, shomi will be the first to stream hotly-tipped programming like NBA Star Lebron James’ BECOMING Series, a response to the lack of Sports-based programming for Kids, and also STARZ Series POWER, produced by Hip-Hop Star Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. It also has exclusivity on FX Original Programming like Sons of Anarchy and American Horror Story, not available on other Streaming Services.
A deal also has been reached with Warner Bros., meaning that acclaimed Series like FALLING SKIES, 2 BROKE GIRLS and SHAMELESS also are not far behind. shomi Users also will be the first to see Producer Rob Thomas’ eagerly-awaited iZOMBIE Series, described as a cross between The Walking Dead and Veronica Mars.
The biggest selling point of shomi is its ease of use. Instead of focusing on word-based searches, Kids in particular will find simplicity with its image and experience-based layout, while its Bookmarking Feature makes it easy to pick-up or proceed in watching programs at a later date.
The $8.99 monthly subscription rate with its first month being free should appeal to Customers who want to add and remove the feature at their own discretion and many will find relief in being able to view programming directly on their Set-Top Boxes, meaning less worries about exceeding Internet Plan Data Caps.
shomi launches this November. Click here to learn more.
