According to the New York Post
, Netflix is looking to make additional in-roads into airing episodes from current television seasons:
The company is in talks with studios about gaining access to current episodes of primetime shows and is willing to pay between $70,000 and $100,000 per episode, according to a person familiar with the matter. Netflix had no comment.
Yesterday, Netflix signed up another content partner, indie firm FilmDistrict, for first-run movies in the traditional pay-TV window, jumping ahead of premium pay-TV services like HBO that would normally get first crack.
