CBS, Netflix extend international licensing agreements

Deal covers 'Dexter,' 'The Good Wife,' 'Borgias'

CBS and Netflix said Thursday they’ve extended their international licensing agreements to stream select CBS shows in Canada, Latin America, the U.K. and Ireland.

Terms of the agreements were not disclosed.

Deal allows Netflix members in those territories to watch previous seasons of Showtime’s “Dexter” and CBS library fare including “Charmed,” “Jericho” and “The 4400.” Previous seasons of other series will be available on a territory-by-territory basis, including CBS’ “The Good Wife and “Hawaii Five-0” and Showtime’s “House of Lies” and “The Borgias.”

“Netflix is a great partner, and this has been a mutually beneficial relationship that has helped grow our respective businesses,” said Armando Nunez, CEO of CBS’ Global Distribution Group.

Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said, “Our goal is to give Netflix members a broad mix of engaging shows to watch, and this extended agreement does just that.”
