Netflix and Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution have announced a multi-year licensing agreement that will bring a host of TV series and films to Netflix members in Latin America and Brazil.
"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," says Gina Brogi, executive vice president, worldwide pay television and subscription video on demand, Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution.
Past seasons of “24,” “Prison Break,” “The X-Files” and “Arrested Development” will be available for on-demand viewing beginning July 15, as well as current and past seasons of “How I Met Your Mother,” “Glee” and “Bones.”
In addition, Twentieth Century Fox classic films such as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Wall Street and Office Space, will be available for instant viewing beginning July 1, 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," says Jason Ropell, vice president of content acquisition, Netflix. "Our partnership with Twentieth Century Fox continues to grow and benefit Netflix members around the world."
Netflix launched in 43 countries and territories in Latin America, including Brazil, last September.
