Netflix and the Weinstein Company have announced a new multi-year licensing agreement, which will make Netflix the exclusive US subscription television service for first-run TWC films, starting in 2016.
This means that 2016 theatrical Weinstein titles will be made available for Netflix members to watch instantly in their pay-TV window, via TV, tablet, phone or computer.
Netflix already has a deal with TWC for its documentaries and foreign films, as well as a range of titles released by boutique label RADiUS-TWC.
Weinstein stated of the new agreement: “The deal that we’ve just completed with Netflix is probably
the biggest deal in the history of The Weinstein Company and together, we are
discussing ways to reinvent the pay TV experience so that the audience can get
even more for their money.”
