Netflix and The Weinstein Company (TWC) announced a new multi-year licensing agreement today that will make Netflix the exclusive U.S. subscription television service for first-run films from TWC beginning in 2016.
Starting with its 2016 theatrically released feature films, new TWC and Dimension Films titles will be made available for Netflix members to watch instantly in the pay TV window on multiple platforms, including televisions, tablets, mobile phones and computers.
Netflix is already the Pay TV home to TWC documentaries and foreign films, including the Academy Award winning Best Picture, “The Artist”, and Best Documentary Feature, “Undefeated”, as well as to a wide-range of movies released by multi-platform distribution label RADiUS-TWC.
“Harvey and Bob Weinstein are in a class to themselves when it comes to choosing and producing the best films in the world,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer for Netflix. “They are as innovative in business as they are creative in their storytelling. We look forward to reinventing the pay TV window with the Weinsteins.”
