Well although I have not tested it with a cable/satelite provider, I can tell you so far it does NOT work with netflix.ca, it allows me to log into my account, but I get an error message with playback that reads:
" This device cannot instantly stream from Netflix in your area. Visit netflix.ca/NRD to see a full list of devices that instantly stream from Netflix"
Now of course I can't choose an out of USA postal code (I don't have anything entered in that field at this time).
I know these boxes aren't being sold in Canada, and apparently that's a good thing, still I got it for free from Intel.
I hope the Canadian support comes ealy this year though, as Logitech is really going to be playing catchup as products like the WDTV Live, Patriot Box Office, Asus O!Play and D-Link Boxee all allow me to do the same thing of thing without the headache. I do want Google TV though, so I'll sit on this box and wait.
Here's to hoping there's some Canadian love soon.

The Revue will work in Canada, but you won't be able to enjoy the full experience that Revue has to offer. Even though the Netflix service is available in Canada, the Revue is not seen as a device that has not been released in Canada, and thus not on the eligible list of devices to play Netflix content from within Canada.
You can still watch TV and enjoy web content that you already get in Canada, through websites such as CBC.ca/video, watch.CTV.ca, or globaltv.com/video which broadcast TV shows to residents of Canada through the web. However, Revue will not provide search specific results to Canadian Postal Codes. Some apps such as Pandora, Amazon VOD, and Napster will only work from within the USA.
Unfortunately, you won't be able to purchase or demo the Revue in Canada, as it's only available in the USA.

Netflix will not work unless it sees that you are in the USA through the internet connection.
