REPORT - Time Warner Licenses Cartoon Network Shows And 'Dallas' To Netflix

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Jan. 14, 2013 — Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., The Warner Bros. Television Group (WBTVG), and Netflix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX) today announced licensing agreements bringing to U.S. Netflix members complete previous seasons of animated and live-action programming from Cartoon Network, Warner Bros. Animation and Adult Swim, as well as the TNT serialized drama Dallas (produced by Warner Horizon Television).

Beginning March 30, 2013, complete past seasons of such great Cartoon Network shows as Adventure Time, Ben 10, Regular Show, Johnny Bravo, Warner Bros. Animation’s Green Lantern will become available on the popular “Just for Kids” section of the world’s leading Internet TV subscription service.

At the same time, Adult Swim shows, such as Robot Chicken, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Sony Pictures Television’s The Boondocks and the Emmy®-winning Childrens Hospital from WBTVG’s Studio 2.0, will be made available.

Coming exclusively to Netflix in January 2014 will be season one and two of the critically acclaimed Warner Horizon Television-produced TNT series Dallas.

“We are delighted that Netflix will become the exclusive over-the-top streaming subscription destination for past seasons of favorite Cartoon Network and Adult Swim titles,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer of Netflix. “We’re also thrilled to be able to offer the latest seasons of Dallas, one of the greatest all-time guilty pleasures.”

“The industry has evolved so that TV Everywhere and subscription video on-demand services can coexist with the appropriate windowing strategy, while allowing for more content flexibility to meet consumer demand in the changing digital landscape,” said Deborah K. Bradley, senior vice president of program acquisitions for Turner Broadcasting. “We’re happy to offer our popular programming to Netflix members, as SVOD services have become another way to grow audiences and can introduce new viewers to our programming.”

“We are thrilled to continue our great relationship with Netflix giving their subscribers access to more and more of our programming,” said Ken Werner, President, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. “This represents another evolutionary step in the TV ecosystem working with Netflix, on the SVOD platform, to improve the consumer experience while being respectful of existing business models.”

The first thing I thought when I read the title was ADVENTURE TIME!

If Cartoon Network refuses to sell proper season sets (they released Season 1 back in July, but since then have released two more random assortment sets!) on DVD this is my next best option.

Adult Swim has a few good things to offer so that'll be cool as well!

I'm hoping for Ed Edd n' Eddy, Grim Adventures, and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.

Apparently getting the rights to distribute Disney and Pixar movies last month wasn't enough. :lol: Anybody else expecting video rental stores to be a thing of the past by 2016?

Netflix has definitely improved! lol It's Always Sunny, Futurama, American Dad, Disney Movies, Dreamworks movies to come soon as well, now I have Cartoon Network's back catalog and The Boondocks to look forward to as well! What's the point of cable again? lol All I need is Key & Peele and The Simpsons to be added and i'll die happy! :)

Fingers crossed for Saul of the Molemen!

I'm really impressed with how strong they've started 2013. A year or two ago when they lost their Starz partnership, it seemed like streaming content was going to have a rough time ahead but with all the new supported devices and other streaming services such as Hulu Plus and Amazon Instant Video going strong, it must have helped push them through the licensing hell on to brighter pastures.

Hopefully, Netflix's success also means good things for the Wii U and the 3DS (if 3D movie support hits the platform as well). Super HD streaming on the Wii U, 3D movies on the Wii U and the 3DS, and Nintendo TVii integrating it all amongst all the other services and cable/satallite/DVR. It could be a very fruitful partnership for both companies moving forward.
