Netflix to Stream The Walking Dead

Netflix has also licensed non-exclusive rights in the U.S. to select scripted and unscripted shows, which will also be made available just before the following season debut. This includes programming from across the AMC Networks portfolio of AMC, IFC, Sundance Channel, and WE tv. Specific series include IFC’s “Portlandia” and “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret”; WE tv’s “Braxton Family Values,” “My Fair Wedding,” and “Bridezillas”; and Sundance Channel’s “All On The Line” with Joe Zee and “Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys.”

“Netflix is already the streaming home of ‘Mad Men’ and ‘Breaking Bad’ in the US and Latin America,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer. “We are delighted to be in business directly with AMC Networks. AMC’s programming sensibilities have struck a chord with our members and with the overall viewing public.”

AMC Networks President and CEO Josh Sapan commented, “This agreement supports the cable ‘ecosystem’ by making our content available to Netflix nearly a year following the linear premiere, it brings our content to a wider audience, and it provides additional revenue to support production of new shows.”
