NYTimes: DreamWorks and Netflix in Deal for New TV Shows

Quote:
" DreamWorks Animation, trying to lessen its dependence on the volatile movie business by aggressively expanding into TV programming, has decided to forgo cable television in favor of Netflix. "

That should give Netflix a boost, after they lost all Warner Brothers movies from last month.

Really interesting move from DreamWorks. These are interesting times for original TV content deals. I have not lived in a country with Netflix yet, so I am not sure about their current children's content library, but I bet this will get them a better footing with kids and parents.

We have it in Ireland, and they have lots of stuff for kids. My main gripe with Netflix is that the kids and comedy genres are made up of American programmes. They need to start acquiring content from local markets that Netflix operates in.
My other gripe is that Netflix is very slow to add new content. I like comedy and they only add a couple of new programmes or films each month. With Warner pulling all their content last month, there are big holes to be filled.
