Netflix announced a multiyear deal with Hasbro Tuesday that will bring some of your favorite childhood cartoons right to your computer screen.
We are very excited to be working with Hasbro Studios, said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Content Acquisition at Netflix in a statement. This deal allows us to offer even more great kids' programming to our members, both adults and kids alike, including new seasons of My Little Pony, Transformers Prime, and Pound Puppies after the season finale airs on The Hub.
The Hasbro content will be available in the 'Just For Kids' section -for children 12 and under - on Netflix. The section launched August 11 with the intention of providing quality content for families.
Some of the shows will be available immediately, while others will debut later this year.
We are pleased that consumers will now be able to watch our award-winning programming on Netflix, the leading internet subscription service, Hasbro Studios President Stephen Davis said in a statement. We are making our content easy to access, anytime, anywhere and on all platforms where audiences are consuming content and this is a big step forward with our all screen strategy.
Netflix also recently acquired the exclusive rights to the award winning 'The Artist' and a new series from Eli Roth entitled 'Hemlock Grove.'
Netflix will add its own exclusive, original content to the streaming site. 'Lilyhammer' a mob dramedy premiered in February. It will feature the upcoming season 4 of beloved quirky comedy 'Arrested Development' and collaboration between David Fincher and Kevin Spacey for 'House of Cards,' according to the Huffington Post.
