Netflix inks pact with Weinsteins

'The Artist' included in multiyear deal

Maneuvering around a pre-existing deal with Showtime, The Weinstein Company has inked an exclusive licensing agreement with Netflix.

Pact covers foreign-language films, documentaries, and certain specialty titles like “The Artist” – all films that would not qualify under TWC’s 2008 premium pact with Showtime.

Terms of the Netflix deal – TWC’s first with the streaming giant – were not disclosed.

Multiyear agreement allows Netflix users to stream TWC titles within one year of their theatrical release, a model which resembles the traditional pay TV window.

Other pics slated for Netflix include “Undefeated,” “Sarah’s Key,” “Intouchables,” “W.E.,” “Coriolanus” and “Bully.” But the pact won’t include the major theatrical titles already covered under the seven-year Showtime deal, covering up to 95 pictures including “My Week with Marilyn,” “The Iron Lady,” “The King’s Speech” and “Scream 4.”
