Netflix Snags Cartoon Network And Adult Swim Shows

Posted: Updated:

YAHOO.COM - New licensing deals Netflix has inked with Turner Broadcasting and Warner Bros. will bring past seasons of Carton Network and Adult Swim shows to Netflix starting March 30.

The entertainment entities on Monday announced the U.S. programming agreements, which also include Warner Bros. Animation's Green Lantern. TNT's Dallas will arrive in 2014.

Netflix's Cartoon Network selection will include Adventure Time, Ben 10 (pictured), Regular Show and Johnny Bravo. The Adult Swim offering will include Robot Chicken, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, The Boondocks and Childrens Hospital.

The news comes just one week after Netflix announced it eventually would start streaming eight Warner Bros. shows and possibly more in the future. The slate includes newer shows (Revolution, The Following, Longmire, Political Animals and 666 Park Avenue) and older ones (Chuck, Fringe and The West Wing).

It appears Time Warner, the parent company of Turner Broadcasting and Warner Bros., is loosening its once tight grip on the content it previously didn't want streaming on subscription services like Netflix.

"The industry has evolved so that TV Everywhere and subscription video on-demand services can co-exist with the appropriate windowing strategy, while allowing for more content flexibility to meet consumer demand in the changing digital landscape," Deborah Bradley, senior vice president of program acquisitions for Turner Broadcasting, said in a statement.

August and September is mating season for the hobo and that means you may be seeing more funnel-like webs in and around your home. Males are on a mission to find a female which is why they are a lot more active at this time.>>
