Turner and WB Strike Multi-Year Netflix Deal
Complete previous seasons of popular Cartoon Network/Adult Swim and Warner Bros. Animation toons will be coming to Netflix’s hit SVOD service thanks to a new licensing agreement struck between the leading Internet TV subscription company and Turner Broadcasting System and Warner Bros. Television Group. The deal also includes live-action programming from CN and the TNT serialized drama Dallas (produced by Warner Horizon TV).
Beginning March 30, 2013, complete past seasons of CN shows such as Adventure Time, Ben 10, Regular Show and Johnny Bravo and Warner Bros. Animation’s Green Lantern will become available on the popular “Just For Kids” section of Netflix’s streaming video platform. At the same time, Adult Swim shows like Robot Chicken, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Sony Pictures Television’s The Boondocks and the Emmy-winning live action series Childrens Hospital from WBTVG’s Studio 2.0 will be available on the older auds side.
TNT’s Dallas seasons one and two will arrive January 2014.
“We are thrilled to continue our great relationship with Netflix giving their subscribers access to more and more of our programming,” said Ken Werner, President, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. “This represents another evolutionary step in the TV ecosystem working with Netflix, on the SVOD platform, to improve the consumer experience while being respectful of existing business models.”
