Netflix is Near a New & Better Deal With the CW Network

CWNetflix has had a deal with the CW Network since the end of 2011 that is coming to an end soon, but a new and even better deal for cord cutters is almost complete.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, this new deal with the CW network will bring new CW shows to Netflix just a few weeks after they end. In the past you had to wait until a new season of a CW show was almost ready to start for the old season to show up on Netflix.

As Netflix gets close to this new deal with the CW Network there are also reports that CW’s talks with Hulu have stalled and there is a real risk of CW shows leaving Hulu soon.

The deal is being negotiated between Netflix and CW’s parent companies CBS and Warner Bros., and it is rumored to extend the Netflix deal for five more years and give Netflix exclusive rights to CW shows in the United States.

The real question is how would this deal effect the new CW streaming service that is rumored to be like their parent company’s CBS All-Access? Since news leaked of a possible new CW streaming service nothing new has come up about it, leaving many to wonder if it has died.

No matter what happens with the new CW streaming service a new Netflix deal to bring content to Netflix more quickly is always good for cord cutters.

    This news means they are probably not going to launch a CW streaming service for now. And since the CW is leaving Hulu that means some cord cutters will be leaving Hulu.

    God, Hulu losing the Criterion collection in the fall, and now The CW as well? There will be like nothing left on the service.
