Arrow, The Flash and more to stream exclusively
Netflix, the world’s leading Internet television network, and The CW Network, a joint venture between CBS Corporation and Warner Bros. Entertainment, announced today a new multi-year content licensing relationship that allows Netflix [Nasdaq: NFLX] to remain the exclusive U.S. subscription television service for previous seasons of scripted series broadcast on The CW.
The new relationship spans all current CW series, as well as all future programs produced for the network during the term of the new agreement, which begins with the just-completed 2015-2016 broadcast season. Starting with the 2016-2017 season, Netflix members will be able to stream full seasons for each of these programs beginning eight days after each show’s season finale.
Programming available to Netflix members will include the three new series on The CW’s 2016-2017 primetime schedule: Frequency, No Tomorrow and Riverdale, the hit DC series, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl, which will join Arrow and The Flash and the network’s critically acclaimed Jane The Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, featuring the Golden Globe-winning performances of Gina Rodriguez and Rachel Bloom, respectively.
The roster will also continue to include fan favourites such as The Vampire Diaries and series The 100, iZombie, The Originals and Reign.
