Netflix Canada scores Paramount Premium Pay TV Window Deal

According with the latest Netflix Press Release, the largest streaming company in the world got some more love in Canada, thanks to a multi-year agreement with Paramount. The newly signed deal brings hundreds of new movies to the package available to the Canadian subscribers, including the exclusive subscription television rights to all first-run films. The first movie to arrive for instant watching is Iron Man 2 (already available on March 25th) and other additional 350 movies in the following months.
Among the most worth mentioning we can find “The Last Airbender”, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “Titanic”, “Defiance” “Zoolander”, “Wayne’s World”, etc.
This is the first time Netflix which had a historically worse selection of content in Canada provides important movies not yet available in US. It is now our turn to look at our neighbors and hope the same content to be available here as well. Ironic, isn’t it?
