Expand Your Queue: Netflix To Stream CW Shows
Netflix users haven't had a lot to be excited about recently. First there was the price increase. Then the rise and fall of Qwikster made the company a virtual punching bag, spawning headlines, jokes and SNL skits.
It hasn't been all bad, though. The company did recently announce it would be streaming the first season of "The Walking Dead," and today there's yet another reason to say "Good job, Netflix!" Especially if you love gossip, vampires, or good looking dudes who ride around in Chevy Impalas.
As soon as this Saturday, October 15th, Netflix subscribers will be able to stream a variety of CW programming, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
This is all part of a deal struck up between The CW and Netflix to allow streaming of the young network's young-skewering programming. The four-year streaming agreement allows users to stream previous seasons of the current crop of CW shows. This means you can finally catch up on all 50 seasons of "One Tree Hill". (I kid, "One Tree Hill" is only about to go into it's 9th season.)
The deal means that subscribers can stream previous seasons of the network's programming through the 2014-2015 season. It also means that shows will remain up for at least four years after they complete their run on the network.
This means you can catch up on "Gossip Girl", "The Vampire Diaries" "Nikita", and "One Tree Hill" starting Saturday and "Supernatural" and "90210" starting in January. In the future, you'll be able to catch up on "Ringer", "Hart of Dixie" and "The Secret Circle" so if you miss an episode now you'll be able to catch up on your streaming device next fall.
For a CW junkie like myself, this is great news. Now I can catch up with my favorite Upper East Siders or Salvatore brothers wherever I go!
What do you think? Are you excited? Which CW show will you be streaming first?
