Netflix to stream DREAMWORKS ANIMATION catalog

Last Updated: April 19, 2014By Tags: ,

In the epic saga of Netflix v. pay TV there is some light at the end of the tunnel for the familiar red envelope company. As first reported on Gizmodo, Dreamworks Animation studios have granted Netflix the rights to stream their catalog. That’s really good news for Netflix–they beat out HBO in competing for fresh studio content–as it gives them new credibility and legitimizes them, and it’s good for the consumers, as there will now be a little bit more movies to choose from—if Shrek and Madagascar is your thing. What hasn’t been made public yet is how quickly movies would be available for streaming. No word about this on the Netflix blog as of the writing of this article.
