Shelly Palmer Radio Report – January 28, 2013

After adding a “Just for Kids” late last year, Netflix is continuing to provide content for younger viewers. The media streaming giant recently signed a multi-year licensing agreement with Turner Broadcasting and Warner Bros. television, which features animated and live-action programming from Cartoon Network, Warner Bros. Animation and Adult Swim. This move goes live on March 30 also provides tons of content for us non-kids, as shows like TNT’s Dallas will come to the service early in 2014. This is another major signing for Netflix, which was already King of the media streaming marketplace. With Hulu focusing on new TV and Redbox Instant by Verizon stumbling out of the gate, Netflix’s only major competition at the moment is from Amazon Instant Video, and this move is sure to make Amazon sweat a bit beneath the collar. If $8/month wasn’t already a great bargain for the 60,000+ titles Netflix had available, adding hits like Childrens Hospital might be enough to put you over the edge.
