CANNES– Rolling off its launch across six European markets and the Netherlands, Netflix has inked a multi-territory licensing deal with CBS Studios International and Showtime.

Deal, which covers the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium and Luxembourg, will provide Netflix with exclusive first-window rights to the Showtime skein “Penny Dreadful” in those markets.
