Netflix announced Wednesday that it is expanding its deal with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to include the new seasons of programs currently available on the streaming video service. The deal includes Republic of Doyle, Mr. D. and Dragon’s Den. It also adds the series Murdoch Mysteries to the service.
“These shows represent some of Canada’s best home-grown television,” said Sean Carey, vice-president of content acquisition for Netflix, in a release. “Working with the CBC is part of our commitment to bringing Canadian subscribers the best of Canadian films and TV shows.”
Netflix currently boasts more than 40 million members in over 40 countries, who watch more than one billion hours of TV shows – including original series like Orange is the New Black and House of Cards – and movies every month.
