Netflix has pulled a lot of big TV names onto the streaming service, spending over $2 billion per year on content from outside sources. The company has apparently nabbed their biggest deal to date, with DreamWorks Animation.
DreamWorks Animation is famous for children films like Shrek, Madagascar, Kung-Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon. The deal allows a time exclusive TV program on Netflix developed by the acclaimed animation studio.
The deal price has not been disclosed but with Netflix ending the Viacom relationship, we believe they have a good amount of money to spend grabbing new and exclusive titles from well known franchises, while continuing to acquire studios for more original programming.
Netflix feels like even though kids programs like Dora the Explorer and Spongebob may not be suitable for the streaming service, big brands who brought you Shrek and Madagascar will rake in the views, especially if they are exclusive.
