CW and Netflix Sign Streaming Deal
 
Link

Here's the gist of it:

Quote:

Programming available to Netflix members will include the eight dramas on The CW’s Fall 2011 schedule, including new series “Ringer,” “Hart Of Dixie” and “The Secret Circle;” returning hits “The Vampire Diaries,” “Gossip Girl,” “90210,” “Supernatural,” “Nikita” and mid-season series, “One Tree Hill.”

Previous seasons of “The Vampire Diaries,” “Gossip Girl,” “One Tree Hill” and “Nikita” will be available to watch instantly on October 15, with previous seasons of “Supernatural” and “90210” beginning in January 2012. Episodes of all scripted series airing on The CW this broadcast season will premiere for Netflix members in Fall 2012. In addition, all episodes of future scripted series appearing on The CW through the 2014-15 season will be available to stream from Netflix through a commensurate window.

Sweet. This will allow me to catch up on Supernatural...eventually.

Actually, this will probably be tapping into a new market for Netflix. They really don't have a lot of stuff that caters to young women.

My thoughts, too. I haven't watched anything since Season 1.

I've never watched it but my wife does and from what I've seen it looks like it might be a good show to start.

Cool. I don't care about anything airing on The CW, but I've always been curious about Supernatural. Perhaps now I'll take some time to check it out.

But do we get Smallville? C'mon someone had to ask?

Not for ten years, and even then Netflix will only have it available for two minutes.

I have no interest in the CW, but Netflix signing new deals is good!

Is this a reference to something? I don't get it.

Perhaps the Superman suit, which Clark wore only in the last few minutes of the Smallville finale (the series ran for ten years). :shrug:

What's the consensus on One Tree Hill? I've enjoyed some teen/young adult drama/soaps. Liked Dawson's Creek, loved Beverly Hills 90210 (well at least for awhile, it did go downhill but I stuck with it), dropped out of the new 90210 after one season, watched the O.C. but only really enjoyed the first two seasons, tried but couldn't finish the first season of Gilmore Girls, enjoy Gossip Girl on a ridiculous/trashy level and stopped watching Hellcats after about five episodes. Anyone have an idea if One Tree Hill would be worth it for me? The promos never looked that interesting, but that doesn't always mean anything.

I enjoyed the first 3 seasons of OTH...the 4th isn't so bad...but after that it just fell off.

Everyone who hasn't watched Supernatural, DO IT! It's awesome, especially seasons 2-5. I love the mythology, the acting, the humor, the music (classic rock, not the usual current pop music that shows up in every other CW show) and the gore. People who don't watch it just because it's on The CW are missing out!
