Netflix, Warner Bros. TV Sign Licensing Deal for Programs Like 'Revolution, and

Chuck! Can't be German it was posted 35 minutes ago.

quote:


Netflix and Warner Bros. Television have reached a licensing agreement that will give the subscription service streaming rights to a grab bag of shows that includes such programs as the J.J. Abrams-produced "Revolution" and evergreen favorites like "The West Wing."

"This unprecedented agreement brings to Netflix members earlier and more exclusively than ever before complete previous seasons of some of the most prominent and successful shows on network and cable television," Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer, said in a statement.

Not every title in the pact is a gem: the agreement also includes recently canceled programs like the ABC supernatural drama "666 Park Avenue."

But there's enough there to satisfy Netflix subscribers who prefer to binge on television shows they may have missed when they originally aired. The agreement includes rights to eight Warner Bros. shows and potential future shows such as "The Following," which stars Kevin Bacon as a former FBI agent tracking a serial killer and is set to debut on FOX this month. Other titles include "Longmire," A&E's Western mystery series, the USA mini-series "Political Animals" with Sigourney Weaver and cult favorites "Fringe" and "Chuck."

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the big attraction for Netflix is not the older titles, but the newer and ongoing shows. Under the agreement, Netflix will become the exclusive online home for complete seasons of Warner Bros. shows from this year. That's increasingly important as Netflix looks for ways to differentiate itself from deep-pocketed streaming service rivals like Amazon Prime.
To that end, Netflix signed a pact with the Walt Disney Company last month that gives it streaming rights to much of the studio's catalog and straight-to-DVD movies as well as the exclusive rights to the studio's new movies from 2016 to 2018.

It is also developing its own slate of original programming, which will kick off next month with the premiere of the political thriller "House of Cards," starring Kevin Spacey.

but it was NOT a commercial success, is it not possible that this is what the editorial was making the statement on?

Uneccessary in my opinion.
Seems like a personal axe to grind by the writer.

Netflix needs to go the route of ESPN and grab as much of the market as possible. I have no idea the $$$ behind these deals but netflix would be dumb to let others sneak in the "instant stream" market if it's avoidable. I'm sure they realize this tho.

Until the knuckleheads at Amazon actually develop a usable interface, they won't be competition for Netflix.

I have Prime for a year but almost never use it because of the horrific interface and terrible sorting and filtering capabilities.

Comcasts online xfinity tv is pretty solid. They usually have shows uploaded to their site as they air.

I would hope that deals like this would give some shows a longer leash before cancellation. There are quite a few current shows that I got into thanks to being able to catch up on NetFlix.

Nearly daily do I check Netflix to see if Chuck is available for streaming. Unfortunately it's always just the dvd rental. I can't wait till they upload the episodes for stream capability.

I stopped watching 666 once I heard it was going to be canceled. I might start back up where I left off once it's up for streaming.

I am kind of confused about this article though, concerning the timeline. West Wing has been available for over a week.

My roommate and I started chuck late and we both loved it. I think we caught up when there was like 2 seasons left. Maybe 3. But it was so great an bad such funny little on liners

One of my favorites ever was when they had to play music and Morgan said dont worry I have it on my Zune..
Chuck says something like you have a Zune?
Morgan: of course I don't have a Zune.

If you know the characters is so funny.
