Netflix, Dogwoof ink Blighty deal

Pix include 'Gasland,' 'Page One,' 'Age of Stupid'

LONDON — Specialty distrib Dogwoof is the latest company to partner with Netflix in Blighty.

The deal will see a raft of the distrib’s docus, such as “Bobby Fischer Against the World,” “Gasland,” “Page One: Inside the New York Times,” “Burma VJ,” “Mugabe and the White African” and “The Age of Stupid,” become available on the VOD service in the territory.

Dogwoof founder Andy Whittaker and Netflix’s chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, negotiated the deal.

“Dogwoof and Netflix is a great fit,” said Whittaker. “Two companies looking to the future and changing the game for film and audiences. It’s great to see Netflix come to the U.K. and shake up the landscape.”

Netflix recently inked a deal with FremantleMedia Enterprises, which will bring 115 hours of content, such as shows like “Men Behaving Badly” and “The Naked Civil Servant” to the service.

Netflix already has secured a raft of deals with content providers, including exclusive deals with distribs Lionsgate U.K. and Alliance Pictures’ Brit arm Momentum Pictures.

The service, which competes with Amazon-owned Lovefilm in the U.K., officially launched in Blighty on Jan. 9.
