NetflixNetflix and The Weinstein Company announced a new multi-year licensing agreement that will make Netflix the exclusive U.S. subscription distributor for first-run films from TWC beginning in 2016.


Starting with its 2016 theatrically released feature films, new TWC and Dimension Films titles will be made available for Netflix members to watch instantly in the pay TV window on multiple platforms, including televisions, tablets, mobile phones and computers.

Netflix is already the Pay TV home to TWC documentaries and foreign films, including the Academy Award winning Best Picture, The Artist, and Best Documentary Feature, Undefeated, as well as to a wide-range of movies released by multi-platform distribution label RADiUS-TWC.

"Harvey and Bob Weinstein are in a class of their own when it comes to choosing and producing the best films in the world. They are as innovative in business as they are creative in their storytelling. We look forward to reinventing the pay TV window with the Weinsteins," said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer for Netflix.

"The deal that we've just completed with Netflix is probably the biggest deal in the history of The Weinstein Company and together, we are discussing ways to reinvent the pay TV experience so that the audience can get even more for their money," said Harvey Weinstein.
