Netflix And PBS Strike Expanded Programming Agreement For US And Canada

netflixNetflix Inc. announced yesterday that an expanded multi-year licensing agreement with PBS Distribution has been signed, making a wide variety of great PBS programming available to Netflix members in the U.S. and Canada. Beginning this fall, Netflix members can enjoy exclusive subscription video-on-demand access to all seasons of critically acclaimed The Bletchley Circle, a gripping murder mystery drama from the UK. In 2014, Netflix will become the exclusive SVOD home of Super Why!, the award-winning PBS KIDS hit preschool series which helps kids build critical literacy skills through storybook adventures.

Also available will be children’s series like Wild Kratts, Caillou and Arthur, documentaries from celebrated filmmaker Ken Burns including Prohibition and Central Park Five, and past seasons of popular non-fiction series like Nova and Secrets of the Dead.

“PBS programming is both entertaining and enriching, a combination that Netflix members really appreciate,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.

“While PBS stations will always be the first place to see our programming, this agreement with Netflix exposes our shows to new audiences and further expands PBS’s presence across all media platforms,” said Jason Seiken, General Manager, PBS Digital.
