Rogers and Shaw have joined forces to create shomi, a recently launched service that offers customers more than 12,000 hours of streamable content in the first year. The biggest draw? Tons of family-friendly content to choose from, in both the Film and TV Shows categories.

Now that the winter weather is in full swing, here are some of our shomi favourites that you can watch with the family this week.

Home Alone (1990)

Is your family looking to get into the holiday spirit a little early this year? Why not introduce your kids to this early ’90s Christmas classic.

Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992)

If you just can’t get enough of the misadventures of little Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin), make it a double feature and watch this equally-entertaining sequel.

The Karate Kid (2010)

This reboot of the ’80s kids classic stars Jackie Chan and Will Smith’s son, Jaden. The perfect entertainment for your own aspiring karate kid.

The Secret Garden (1993)

If you’re looking for something less action-packed try this underrated little gem, starring Maggie Smith as the meddling housekeeper Mrs. Medlock. Based on the famous book by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

Robots (2005)

Still reeling from the loss of actor Robin Williams? Introduce your kids to one of his family-friendly features with this animated adventure.

The Princess Diaries

Before Anne Hathaway was famous she played an unlikely heir to a royal throne alongside the legendary Julie Andrews.

Muppet Treasure Island (1996)

Since The Muppets have received a new surge in popularity thanks to their latest two feature films, now is the perfect time to watch this high-seas adventure with the family.

Yo Gabba Gabba (2007-present)

Let DJ Lance Rock keep the party going on those wintery nights with episodes of this popular kids TV show.

Baby Looney Tunes (2002-present)

It’s just as adorable as the title suggests.

102 Dalmations (2000)

Watch Glenn Close reprise her role as the villainous Cruella De Vil as she goes after those cute little puppies again after breaking out of prison.
