    In my country, many things are region blocked, most specifically, official websites that share their television programming, like Cartoon Network and Comedy Central.
    The United States seem to have nearly everything unlocked, but does Canada have any internet region blocks i should be aware of?

    Why don't you just use proxies and VPN to change region location?

    If its for online, there is a chrome plugin called Hola! VPN which allows you to change where you're browsing from :)

    Yup, seconding the "Amazon Underground app" and Netflix (although I just use the Internet to stream shows now).

    We sometimes get blocks on Hulu and similar, which is really annoying when I'm sent something by friends.
