UPDATE 10/29/15, 4:59pm: While residents in the U.S. and other countries have confirmed access, it’s been reported that residents in Canada are restricted from watching the full episodes on Degrassi’s youtube channel. Graham, DHX Media’s Youtube Project Lead, left this comment:
Hello Internet Fans,
My team is responsible for this initiative. Be sure to keep an eye on the YouTube channel over the next few weeks as we plan to roll out seasons 1-10 of this great show. We wish we could make them all available in Canada, but unfortunately we don’t control Canadian (or African) rights at the moment.
Don’t forget to subscribe!
The Degrassi Gods have answered our prayers and are now posting full Degrassi: TNG episodes on their Youtube channel.
All fifteen episodes of season 1 are now available for your viewing pleasure.
I hope they know how amazing this is. I come from the “download generation.” When TNG episodes aired in Canada months before they did in America, we waited for sites like “Degrassi The Next Generation Hangout” to create episode downloads so we could keep up with the Canadian broadcast schedule. I still have those downloads (seasons 1-4) because it’s so much quicker to reference something from an episode using the video file on your computer than having to whip out the damn DVD, rewind, etc.
Full, GOOD QUALITY versions of Degrassi episodes on Youtube is a beautiful thing. I know there were questions about whether or not Degrassi TNG episodes would make it onto Netflix along with Next Class. I believe the Stohn said that would happen eventually. However, the episodes being on Youtube would be even better for us. I hope more seasons are to come!
