Netflix Gets Documentary ‘The Fabulous Ice Age’By: Chris Crum - February 3, 2014
Netflix appears to have gained exclusive streaming rights for documentary The Fabulous Ice Age, at least for four months. The title is currently available for streaming.
Netflix just uploaded the trailer on YouTube:
Here’s the description from Netflix:
For decades, American touring ice shows dominated family entertainment with their dazzling production and variety acts. This documentary honors them through interviews and archival footage, and depicts one skater’s quest to keep this history alive.
More about it here.
We haven’t seen any announcements from Netflix beyond the trailer, but according to the film’s Facebook page, “The DVDs will be available in four months and at that time it will also be on itunes and Amazon. June 3 is the unofficial release date!”
A piece in the Dance section of the New York Times website noted that the film would be available on Netflix on Monday.
Netflix has been keeping the exclusive documentary streaming steadily flowing since last fall, with titles like Bridegroom, The Short Game, The Square (which was nominated for an Oscar) and Mitt.
