This is VERY VERY BIG news for Netflix. All these people piss and moan about the recent price increase but it's the need to get deals like this in place that help to justify the rise.

It would've been more amazing, if it was Dreamworks in general, not just Dreamworks animation.

Baby Steps Steps.

yeah, maybe but i don't see that happening anytime soon.

$30 million per title?! That means Netflix is making a LOT more money than I thought they were. I guess it's good news for the customers though, because in the UK the only option we have is LoveFilm and it sucks ass. There was like 1 new film every month, and it was never day & date with the DVD release date.

that seems crazy expensive, that can't be right

Big news. Good decent movies in the Dreamworks archive. But I dont understand why these studios wont allow netflix to just pay them on a per play basis? Or maybe Netflix feels as if its better to pay one lump sum.

Starting in 2013, films released by dreamworks animation will be first made exclusivly available for viewing on netflix. Between then and now, previously released dreamworks movies will be added to Netflix’s library.
