Netflix signs new streaming deals with Warner, CBS Netflix has signed new streaming distribution deals with Warner Bros. and CBS today, allowing subscribers to watch shows from The CW.
The deal is good for four years and includes access to the station's most popular programs like "The Vampire Diaries," "Gossip Girl," "One Tree Hill," and "Nikita," "Supernatural," "Ringer," "Hart of Dixie," and "The Secret Circle."

Episodes of previous seasons will be available on October 15th with the exception of Supernatural and 90210 which will start in January.

The deal is worth $1 billion over its life.

Says CBS CEO Les Moonves:

This is a forward-thinking agreement for a network whose programming occupies a unique space in the content marketplace. It is a model that opens a new door for The CW programming to expand its audience reach through the terrific Netflix service, and creates a brand-new window for CBS and Warner Bros. to be paid for the content we supply the network. It also further illustrates how new distribution systems are providing premium content suppliers with additive revenue streams while still preserving traditional monetization windows.

Where are you guys watching TV? lol

Simpsons is owned by Fox, Futurama is owned by Fox, Comedy Central (everything else is syndicated), Parks and Rec is NBC. TBS would be unbelievably expensive for Netflix as it is cable and not broadcast. Although $1 billion for CW seems a bit steep...

Northwest Mississippi lol yeah, that's why if you have DTV (like us) you even get multiple "versions" of channels, they show different content at different times. Commercials tailored for different areas even.

it's kinda funny that they have tried to convince all the idiots who use the streaming that they had to raise prices so that they could add more QUALITY content to the streaming service. and this is the first batch of crap that they end up OVER-PAYING for. I hope all the suckers that have jumped on netflixs streaming dicks are happy that they are being bent over like this. the streaming is a pile of shit and this steaming pile is just being shoveled right on top.

Yep, but if you have dish network, cost 10.00 a month and it comes with 1 disc out at a time.

However, you have never have dish network and you sign up for Dish Network, you get BB Pass for 1 year free but I think you gotta tell the tech that if you want the BB Pass for a year when he comes to install it.

Rumors has it that BB coming to Facebook as well.
