CBS and Netflix Announce Extension of Multiyear Licensing Deal


Netflix and CBS have officially announced the extension of their multiyear licensing agreement. Under the new revised agreement, Netflix will gain new titles such as “L.A. Complex,” “4400,” and “CSI: NY” to be available for their customers. The terms of the deal, however, were not disclosed. 

Netflix customers will also get to continue watching the popular CBS shows already available such as “Jericho,” “Medium,” and “Flashpoint,” as well as episodes from some of television’s most iconic franchises, including all generations of the definitive sci-fi series “Star Trek” and the cult favorite “Twin Peaks.”

Scott Koondel, Chief Corporate Content Licensing Officer for CBS Corporation, said,

“We are very pleased to build on this long-term partnership that continues to recognize the tremendous value of CBS’s catalog of content. Netflix is a key programming partner that is additive to our overall business, and we look forward to working with them in the years to come.”

Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer for Netflix, also added,

“We are delighted to be bringing these much-loved series to our members in the U.S.. Our goal is to give Netflix members a broad mix of engaging shows to watch, and we look forward to adding even more high-profile titles from CBS in the near future.”
