Netflix & The CW Announce New Partnership


Netflix, the world’s leading Internet television network, and The CW Network announced a new multi-year licensing agreement.


To cut through the legal stuff, this means that in the US Netflix will be the only way to catch up on past seasons of CW shows like The Flash and grant subscribers access to new shows like Frequency, No Tomorrow and Supergirl.


Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW had this to say about the agreement:

“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 has positioned itself for the future by transforming into a true hybrid network, rooted in broadcast while fully embracing the digital and streaming habits of the viewers.”
