Netflix and BBC Worldwide will team to bring a broad range of BBC series to Netflix members in the U.K. and Ireland beginning in early 2012.
Series such as “Torchwood” and “Spooks” will be available via Netflix’s streaming content to Internet connected televisions, tablets, game consoles, computers and mobile phones. The licensing agreement expands upon Netflix’s entrance into the U.K. and Eire market next year.
“BBC shows are a big favorite of our over 20 million streaming members in the U.S., Canada and Latin America,” says Ted Sarandos, chief content officer for Netflix. “Members love watching back to back episodes of BBC series where and when they want, at the click of a button. We are incredibly proud to make these high quality programs available to Netflix members in the U.K. and Ireland.”
Additional BBC titles available under the agreement include “Little Britain,” “Fawlty Towers,” “Miss Marple” and “Inspector Lynley.”
