Today, Netflix made an announcement that should appeal to both adults and children that enjoy animation. The subscription media streaming service inked a deal with both Turner Broadcasting and Warner Brothers. The deal will give Netflix the exclusive rights to some of the biggest title on Cartoon Network and Adult Swim.
For the kids starting on March 30, 2013 Netflix will be adding 'Adventure Time', 'Ben 10', 'Johnny Bravo' and more fan favorites from Cartoon Network to their children programming line up. For the more mature audience they will also be adding 'The Boondocks', 'Aqua Teen Hunger Force' and other favorites of the animated adult swim programming.
"We are delighted that Netflix will become the exclusive over-the-top streaming subscription destination for past seasons of favorite Cartoon Network and Adult Swim titles," said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer of Netflix in a press release. "We're also thrilled to be able to offer the latest seasons of Dallas, one of the greatest all-time guilty pleasures."
For the people that aren't fans of animation the deal also has something for you in the form of one of the all-time biggest dramas. Unfortunately for the fans of 'Dallas' the show won't be available on the same date or even this year. You won't be able to watch the comings and goings of the Ewing family until Jan. 2014.
“The industry has evolved so that TV Everywhere and subscription video on-demand services can coexist with the appropriate windowing strategy,” Deborah Bradley, Turner’s senior vice president of program acquisitions, said in a written statement.
