Netflix Signs Deal to Stream Warner Bros. TV Dramas in the U.S.
Netflix has announced today it has signed an exclusive deal to stream Warner Bros. TV dramas in the U.S. The deal will make Netflix the exclusive home of prior seasons of shows from the 2012-2013 season, and customers can expect to see the following shows:
- Revolution (NBC),
- The Following (Fox)
- Longmire (A&E)
- Political Animals (USA)
- 666 Park Avenue (ABC)
- Also included: “Chuck,” “Fringe” and “The West Wing”
“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,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer. “Through deals like this, Netflix is making the production economics right for the continued creation of the kind of compelling serialized dramas and thrillers that our members love.”
Of course, this U.S-only announcement means Canadians won’t be able to watch them–unless you have access to a reliable VPN service like HideMyAss. Then, Canadian users will be able to watch the entire U.S. Netflix library with no issues at all (and any other US streams like HULU, etc). US-only Netflix content will eventually make its way to Canada but will take some time.

Update: Fringe and LOST are already available in Canada.
