Netflix Watch Instantly Adds Tons Of Classic CBS Content

Coming on the heels of Hulu’s game changing announcement that they have teamed with The Criterion Collectionto ultimately bring Hulu Plus users over 800 streaming films, Netflix have announced a partnership that may lack in numbers, but not in quality.

The company has announced that they have inked a deal with CBS that, beginning in early April, will bring users dozens of shows from the CBS ranks including Medium, Flashpoint, Fraiser, Family Ties, Star Trek, and even the beloved cult David Lynch TV series, Twin Peaks.

Along with episodes of classic shows like The Twilight Zone and The Andy Griffith Show, this deal is one that may not be quite as expansive as the Hulu / Criterion deal, but it does offer quite a bit for users.

Personally, I’m most excited about the additions of classic shows like Star Trek and The Twilight Zone, franchises that I’m admittedly not all that studied in.   This deal includes all generations of the former, so there is quite a bit of meat to this relatively solid deal.

Overall, this is definitely one hell of a great venture for Netflix.   These are worthwhile additions, that will apparently be showing up relatively soon.   What are you most excited to see added from this deal?
