Netflix Extends CBS Deal, Gets More Titles
[ Business]

Netflix and CBS announced this morning that they have extended their multi-year licensing agreement, which allows Netflix to continue streaming select programs from the CBS library.

The deal includes titles that are already available on Netflix, such as: Jericho, Medium, Flashpoint, Star Trek (all generations) and Twin Peaks. Also included are new titles like L.A. Complex, 4400, and CSI: NY.

“We are very pleased to build on this long-term partnership that continues to recognize the tremendous value of CBS’s catalog of content,” said Scott Koondel, Chief Corporate Content Licensing Officer for CBS. “Netflix is a key programming partner that is additive to our overall business, and we look forward to working with them in the years to come.”

“We are delighted to be bringing these much-loved series to our members in the U.S.,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer for Netflix. “Our goal is to give Netflix members a broad mix of engaging shows to watch, and we look forward to adding even more high-profile titles from CBS in the near future.”

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

While Netflix makes a name for itself on the orignal programming scene, the company continues to make important deals to make sure it has plenty of content in its streaming library that people already know and love. Last week, the company also announced an extension of its deal with PBS, netting exclusive streaming rights to a couple of shows. Netflix also announced an exclusive deal to stream reruns of the Fox comedy New Girl.

As far as the original programming goes, Netflix’s next potential hit is set to debut this Thursday. Orange is the New Black has already been receiving very positive reviews from critics, and Netflix is so confident in its success that it has even renewed the show for a second season ahead of its debut.
