Netflix, Twentieth Century Fox in agreement for LatAm and Brazil

MUMBAI: Netflix, US video-on-demand service provider, and Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution, have signed a multi-year licensing agreement that will soon make a host of great TV series and films available for Netflix members to instantly watch in Latin America and Brazil.

All past seasons of 24, Prison Break and How I Met Your Mother will be available for viewing in July, as well as current and past seasons of Glee and Bones. Episodes of The X-Files and Arrested Development will be available starting January 2013.

In addition, Twentieth Century Fox classic films including Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Wall Street and Office Space, will come to Netflix on 1 July, with more films and TV series to be added over the next few years.

"We are thrilled to be bringing such favorites as How I Met Your Mother and Glee to our members in Latin America and Brazil. Our partnership with Twentieth Century Fox continues to grow and benefit Netflix members around the world," said Netflix VP Content Acquisition Jason Ropell.

"Because Latin America is such an important territory for the fan base of our shows, our partnership with Netflix serves as a vital opportunity to link that fan base with the characters and shows that they have come to know and love," said Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution EVP Worldwide Pay Television and Subscription Video on Demand Gina Brogi.

Netflix launched in 43 countries and territories in Latin America, including Brazil, in September 2011. Since then, the number of movie and TV shows available to watch instantly has more than doubled.

Additionally, the number of devices members can use to enjoy Netflix continues to expand in the region and now includes a wide range of game players, Smart TVs, tablets, smart phones and Apple TV.
