→ Netflix increases its streaming Offerings

Netflix continues to scoop up whole catalogs of TV dramas for a lot less money. Netflix’s latest little deal is with Warner Bros. — not the movie studio but its television division — giving it exclusive streaming rights to completed seasons of the J.J. Abrams-produced Revolution (a big debut on NBC last year), 666 Park Avenue (another just-canceled ABC “supernatural thriller” trying to recapture Lost’s early magic), and basic cable entries Political Animals and Longmire. Warner Bros. is also licensing the full runs of The West Wing (already streaming on Netflix), Chuck, and Fringe, plus Fox’s not-yet-aired Kevin-Bacon-chases-a-serial-killer drama The Following.

Good move by Netflix. I am particularly looking forward to watching the last couple of seasons of Chuck.
