Netflix has inked a programming deal with the Weinstein Group. The content streaming and delivery service’s deal with the movie producer and distributor gives it access to a raft of features including The Artist, which will now debut on Netflix ahead of premium cable in the US.
The multiyear deal also gives US-listed Netflix Weinstein’s Undefeated, which will also debut on Netflix ahead of cable. The features covered by the deal will be available on Netflix within a year of their theatrical release. Other titles include The Intouchables, W.E. and Bully.
“We couldn’t be happier to be working again with Harvey and Bob, who have an unmatched track record of creating critically acclaimed and commercially successful movies,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.
“It is a fantastic coup for Netflix to acquire The Artist and the package of additional titles,” said TWC co-chairman Harvey Weinstein, “It’s exciting that we can offer consumers a supremely convenient way to see the kinds of movies that made us want to be in this business in the first place.”
