    Netflix, PBS Expand Programming Agreement for U.S., Canada - Speakeasy - WSJ (click for full article)

    by Melodie Warner - July 3, 2013

    "Netflix Inc. (NFLX) expanded its multiyear licensing agreement with PBS Distribution for U.S. and Canada to add the murder mystery drama "The Bletchley Circle" and other PBS programming.

    Financial terms of the agreement, which begins this fall, weren't disclosed.

    The online-video company recently signed multiyear deals with DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. and Walt Disney Co.'s Disney/ABC Television Group to expand its programming for families.

    Netflix said its PBS agreement also adds children's series, like Wild Kratts, Caillou and Arthur; documentaries from filmmaker Ken Burns, including Prohibition and Central Park Five; and past seasons of nonfiction series like Nova and Secrets of the Dead.

    Netflix also said it will become the exclusive streaming-video-on-demand home of Super Why!, an award-winning preschool series, in 2014."
