Netflix, CBS Extend Licensing Deal For Library Content

Netflix and CBS recently reached an agreement to extend a multi-year licensing deal for the network’s library content.

Although terms of the deal were not disclosed to the public, it’s being reported that a number of new CBS shows will make their way to the streaming platform. Included in the new deal are CSI: NY, 4400, and L.A. Complex.

The agreement between Netflix and the network also ensures that several current shows will remain on the subscription service. This means fans of Twin Peaks and Star Trek will still have access to several of their favorite episodes for many years to come.

“We are very pleased to build on this long-term partnership that continues to recognize the tremendous value of CBS’s catalog of content. Netflix is a key programming partner that is additive to our overall business, and we look forward to working with them in the years to come,” CBS’ Scott Koondel said in a statement.

Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos was also “delighted” by the addition of several CBS shows to the company’s streaming service. Sarandos said the company is dedicated to bringing more content to subscribers through these multi-year agreements.

“Our goal is to give Netflix members a broad mix of engaging shows to watch, and we look forward to adding even more high-profile titles from CBS in the near future,” he explained.

New CBS shows aren’t the only new additions to the Netflix streaming lineup. The Inquisitr previously reported that Disney recently added several movies from its catalog to the service.

Included among the new offerings are such classics as Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Mulan. The subscription service also recently added the TV programs Agatha Christie’s Marple and Rosemary & Thyme.
