Netflix is expanding its digital content offerings thanks to a new deal with Discovery Communications.
The flagship channel as well as TLC, Animal Planet, Investigation Discovery and Science and Military channels are included in the deal encompassing such popular series including as Man vs. Wild, Sister Wives and River Monsters.
It does not include content from OWN or The Hub, which are joint ventures with Oprah Winfrey and toy-maker Hasbro, respectively.
Financial terms were not disclosed. But the deal marks something of a departure for Discovery Communications, which heretofore has not widely offered full episodes of its series and specials online.
“With television shows playing an ever more important role for Netflix, Discovery is one our finest suppliers of top quality programming,” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement. “We look forward to bringing our members the wide range of the additional episodes and series covered in this deal.”
