Netflix adds Mad Men to Instant Watch, announces international CBS deal

The first four seasons of “Mad Men” have been added to Netflix’s Instant Watch streaming video service, effectively adding a total 52 episodes from 2007-2010. AMC’s original television series stars Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser, and Christina Hendricks among others. The episodes are only available to stream in standard-definition.

Netflix also announced a two-year non-exclusive deal to stream selected CBS content in Canada and Latin America. The international agreement will take effect on September 1, giving streaming Netflix subscribers in Canada access to shows such as “90210,” “Californication,” “The United States of Tara,” “Twin Peaks,” and “Numb3rs.”

In Latin America, Netflix recently announced 43 countries throughout Mexico, South America and the Caribbean will be able to stream CBS shows such as “90210,” “Medium,” “Nurse Jackie,” “Californication” and “Dexter,” as well as episodes of “Star Trek,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” and “Twin Peaks.”

CBS Studios’ International President Armando Nunez said, “[the new arrangement] does not compete with U.S. ratings or SHOWTIME’s domestic subscriber base…]”

Netflix took a hit on Wall Street late Monday following their warning to investors of expected slow customer growth. The report came after Netflix split its streaming and DVD/Blu-ray rental services, effectively raising subscription rates for customers by 60%. The new pricing and service plans take effect Sept. 1 for existing customers.
