Netflix and BBC Announce Streaming Agreement

Netflix and BBC Worldwide, the commercial arm of the BBC, have announced a new digital licensing agreement that will bring a broad range of BBC series to Netflix members in the UK and Ireland.

Beginning early 2012, previous series of BBC shows such as “Torchwood” and “Spooks” will be available for Netflix members to watch instantly in the UK and Ireland streamed over the Internet to connected TVs, tablets, game consoles, computers and mobile phones.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Netflix had announced in October that it would launch its service in the UK and Ireland early in 2012.

“BBC shows are a big favourite of our over 20 million streaming members in the U.S., Canada and Latin America,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer. “Members love watching back-to-back episodes of BBC series where and when they want, at the click of a button. We are incredibly proud to make these high quality programmes available to Netflix members in the UK and Ireland.”

Additional BBC titles available to members of Netflix in the UK and Ireland will include comedies like “Little Britain” and “Fawlty Towers,” and dramas like “Miss Marple” and “Inspector Lynley.” Netflix made this announcement today, Dec. 20.
