Netflix & The CW Network have just inked a new multi-year agreement that will see Netflix remain the exclusive U.S. subscription service for current & previous seasons of The CW’s shows.
The CW also included in the deal that full seasons of their upcoming 2016-2017 series will hit Netflix eight days after each season ends. It covers both the shows currently on the CW, plus any future series produced for the network. This means you’ll no longer have to wait long periods of time for hit CW shows such as Arrow, Flash, Vampire Diaries, Legends Of Tomorrow, Supergirl, and more, to come to Netflix.
Both companies released statments verifying the news.
Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said: “Netflix members in the US love the great lineup of series from the CW, and we are thrilled to extend the relationship and bring those shows to our members exclusively now, just eight days after their season finales. This is a great step forward with a valued network partner to give fans exactly what they want, when and how they want it.”
While President of The CW Mark Pedowitz, said “Since the initial landmark deal in 2011, The CW’s programming has enjoyed tremendous success and increased exposure through Netflix, and our new agreement not only continues but enhances this valuable relationship.”
The CW Network is a joint venture between CBS and Warner Brothers that is also home to series such as Frequency, No Tomorrow, Riverdale, Jane The Virgin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and more.
