A: Video can take up to 10 seconds to display or you may be running a content filter, antivirus application or proxy accelerator that is preventing the streaming of video content. Please turn off these services and try again.
Q: Could the reason I'm not able to watch video on foodnetwork.ca be because I live outside of Canada?

Q: It says I'm not in Canada, but I am. What's going on?
A: It sounds like you could have a browser extension that is modifying your IP address, so our video player or app thinks you're in the U.S. You might not even realize you have it running! Turn it off and your computer or device will reconnect to your Canadian IP in a moment.
Q: I have always been able to watch video content on foodnetwork.ca and I am currently experiencing problems. How do I report this?

Q: How can I submit an original series pitch to Food Network Canada?
