Netflix, Disney Expand Deal for Netherlands

Titles available to Dutch subscribers starting in 2014 include 'The Avengers,' 'Monsters University' and 'The Lone Ranger'

Netflix obtained exclusive subscription video-on-demand rights to additional Disney titles for its just-launched streaming service in the Netherlands, starting in 2014.

Under expanded pact with Mouse House, Netflix has exclusive subscription VOD rights in the Dutch market for live-action and animated movies from the Mouse House, including Marvel’s “The Avengers,” Pixar’s “Monsters University,” and “The Lone Ranger.” Deal also covers library titles including “The Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl,” “Ratatouille” and “WALL-E,” as well as ABC’s “Lost” and other shows.

Netflix last month launched service in the Netherlands, its seventh European market and 41st country launch overall. The Dutch service is €7.99 per month (currently about $10.80 U.S.).

“Working with Netflix gives us the perfect opportunity to offer their members in the Netherlands a superb variety of Disney movies through a high quality and convenient viewing experience,” Catherine Powell, Disney’s senior vice president of program distribution for EMEA, said in a statement.

In the U.S., Disney and Netflix cut a deal in December 2012, under which the Internet video company will obtain exclusive access to new and catalog titles in the pay TV window in the U.S. after Disney’s pact with Starz expires at the end of 2015. Netflix will pay Disney $200 million to $300 million annually for the streaming rights, according to analyst estimates.
