Netflix gets 'The Walking Dead' season 1

Posted on

EW has confirmed that AMC Networks has signed a multi-year licensing agreement with Netflix to make streaming of The Walking Dead season 1 exclusive to Netflix starting today. “We are delighted to be in business directly with AMC Networks. AMC’s programming sensibilities have struck a chord with our members and with the overall viewing public,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos, who noted that Netflix has already secured streaming rights to AMC’s Breaking Bad and Mad Men. Today’s deal also includes Sundance programs All On The Line with Joe Zee and Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys, plus future seasons of Dead.

Perhaps this will help lessen Netflix users’ Qwikster quibbles?
