Web Extra: Netflix
Netflix landed on the trader radar with the firm inking a deal with Warner Brothers and CBS for CW Network programming.
The deal, which is for shows from the current schedule through 2014-15 season, is the latest in a string of deals Netflix has been reaching to bulk up its streaming service and convert more subscribers from its more costly DVD mail delivery service.
In the past few months Netflix has reached programing deals with Lions Gate and Sony Pictures Entertainment for award-winning shows "Mad Men" and "Breaking Bad", as well AMC Networks for "Walking Dead" and other shows.
Is the lartset deal a sign that Netflix is obtaining premium content or is it a signal Netflix is being forced to pay a premium just to stay afloat?
