Netflix is adding more PBS shows in an expanded licensing agreement, the company announced Wednesday. That includes streaming exclusives for murder mystery drama The Bletchley Circle starting this fall, and for kids’ show Super Why! starting next year. Netflix will also continue to stream seasons of PBS shows it already had the rights to, like Caillou and Nova.
As is becoming a pattern in the streaming wars, Amazon announced last week that it had expanded its own licensing agreement with PBS for Prime Instant Video, and that PBS kids’ shows will be available through Amazon’s kids’ subscription product Kindle FreeTime Unlimited. In that announcement, Amazon also included a reminder that it now has the exclusive streaming rights to PBS hit Downton Abbey — and that show is no longer available on Netflix.
