Netflix inks with Universal and Twentieth Century Fox: first TV streams, more films, and 28 day rent
Wow, guess our weekly Blu-ray releases list just gained a bunch of new asterisks huh?!? Can’t say I’m at all surprised, I think everyone saw that once Netflix caved to one studio, the rest would follow suit.
Everyone’s streaming media darling, Netflix, has just reached terms with both Universal and Twentieth Century Fox. Both agreements beef up Netflix’s streaming content while limiting Netflix to renting DVD and Blu-ray discs 28 days after the retail street date — yup, just like with Warner Brothers.
