I’ve said this from day 1, Netflix Canada will continue to keep getting better and better. Netflix previously signed exclusive rights to show the much-anticipated drama ‘House of Cards’ first, and this includes Canada. Today on the Netflix blog, they have announced a deal with Paramount. This is awesome news for Canadians!
Netflix members in Canada can enjoy theatrical hits from Paramount in the coming months starting with “The Last Airbender” and Marvel’s “Iron Man 2.” The five year agreement will add over 350 new movies available to watch instantly from Netflix in Canada, including epics like “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “Titanic,” and “Defiance,” great comedies like “Zoolander” and “Wayne’s World,” and beloved classics like “The African Queen,” “Sabrina” (1954) and “Terms of Endearment.”
“We are committed to constantly expanding our selection of top new movies and TV shows for our Canadian members,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer. “This agreement will allow them to watch some of the latest hit Paramount films as well as an incredible range of the studio’s recent and classic favorites anytime they want. Netflix and Paramount enjoy a great relationship and are proud to bring such a terrific array of films to Netflix members in Canada.”
The multi-year deal with Paramount will add hundreds of movies and the exclusive subscription TV rights to all first-run films for Netflix Canada. Apple TV works perfectly with Netflix (the integration is seamless!). A hint this deal was in the making made sense when Iron Man 2 made it onto Netflix Canada a while back.
