A new deal has been signed between The CW and Netflix, which brings the latest full seasons of your favorite CW shows to Netflix just eight days after the season finale airs! Yes, The Flash or Supergirl comes to an end and then you can binge watch the full season on Netflix just one week later! Check out the details of the new agreement below!
This is a big deal for Netflix, as The CW was having current episodes airing on Hulu. However, this new deal puts current episodes on CWTV.com only and then once the season is complete, the full season will be available to stream on Netflix only just eight days later! So, buh bye to Hulu and a big win for Netflix!
This new agreement begins with the 2016-17 season and includes any series produced over the course of the agreement. So, Netflix has exclusive rights to all episodes and all shows on The CW and that is a huge deal for them, especially since the demo that watched The CW shows would be the same demo you would expect to do a lot of binge-watching of shows!
Network president Mark Pedowitz said: “Since the initial landmark deal in 2011, The CW’s programming has enjoyed… increased exposure through Netflix. The CW has positioned itself for the future by [remaining] rooted in broadcast while fully embracing the digital and streaming habits of the viewers.”
