The Weinstein Company and Netflix Unveil Deal to Stream Films
The Weinstein Company (TWC) and Netflix have inked a multi-year deal, giving Netflix subscribers in the U.S. exclusive rights to TWC films, including The Artist, which is expected to dominate the Oscars this Sunday. Other lauded TWC titles that will be available exclusively on Netflix, include Undefeated, nominated for a Best Documentary Feature Academy Award, Madonna’s W.E., bestowed with a Golden Globe for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture, Frances’s recent box-office smash, The Intouchables, Sarah’s Key, starring Kristen Scott Thomas, and Ralph Fiennes’ adaptation of Coriolanus.

"It is a fantastic coup for Netflix to acquire The Artist and the package of additional titles. With this deal, a company that loves movies, Netflix, joins forces with a company that is built on that same love. It's exciting that we can offer consumers a supremely convenient way to see the kinds of movies that made us want to be in this business in the first place," said TWC co-chair, Harvey Weinstein in a statement.

“We couldn't be happier to be working again with Harvey and Bob, who have an unmatched track record of creating critically acclaimed and commercially successful movies," stated Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos.

Particulars of the aforesaid deal, including financial terms, will not be disclosed to the public.
