Netflix is giving Ontario cottage country dwellers an entertainment fix over holiday weekends this summer. The streaming video operator says it’s opening several temporary “download zones” that allow viewers to refill their mobile devices with fresh TV series and films. It begins this weekend with a Wi-Fi hotspot at Bass Pro Shop at Vaughan Mills on Friday and the Farmers Market in Collingwood, both Saturday and Sunday. Employees will be on-site to guide users through the steps. (Source: muskoka411.com)
