Netflix to add streaming Miramax movies

Great news for Netflix subscribers today, as the company announced Miramax titles will soon be available to watch instantly on HDTVs, PCs and mobile devices. Netflix and Miramax have signed a multi-year digital streaming agreement which includes 68 Academy Award-winning films.

This marks the first time Miramax titles such as “Good Will Hunting,” “Cinema Paradiso,” and “Pulp Fiction” will be available through a digital subscriber-based service.
