Netflix will add shows from Warner Bros. Television to its ever-growing streaming library, according to a deal announced Monday.
This means that older TV favorites such as “Chuck” and “The West Wing” as well as newer series such as “Fringe,” “Revolution” and Kevin Bacon’s upcoming crime drama “The Following” and the USA Network miniseries “Political Animals” starring Sigourney Weaver will be available for streaming to Netflix customers.
Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos told the Hollywood Reporter: “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.”
Netflix has been trying to diversify its entertainment offerings by pursuing exclusive agreements with production companies. Last month, the video-streaming company inked a deal with the Walt Disney Company to stream their movie library.
In addition to negotiating rights deals with production companies, Netflix will be debuting original programming in 2013, including the David Fincher-produced political drama “House of Cards” and the comedy series “Arrested Development.”
