Netflix strikes deal with Miramax for UK and Ireland

Netflix has struck a deal with Miramax to make Miramax titles available on its forthcoming service in the UK and Ireland.

Titles that will be available on the Netflix service in the UK and Ireland, in addition to movies already available in the US and Latin America, will include The Aviator, Bad Santa, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, Chocolat and Finding Neverland.

“Netflix is proud to be able to offer the unmatched mix of award-winning, independent and commercially successful films Miramax is known for,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer. “Miramax films are already favorites of Netflix members in the US and Latin America and we’re sure they’ll be incredibly popular in the UK and Ireland as well.”

Netflix’s service for the UK and Ireland is scheduled to go live in early 2012.
