Netflix not stopping in getting exclusive deals..

Well, Netflix just signed another exclusive deal for tv series with Warner Brothers. Netflix is definitely ramping up it's catalog.

Good for Netflix, but I'm tired of exclusive deals.

Agreed. It's going to be cable all over again, where people are going to end up subscribing to services with 90% identical content, just for the few things they want.

Also a report going around how HBO signed an exclusive deal with universal, it is very misleading and implies nothing from universal will ever be on netflix, there is a ton of bad journalism out there. it is for the rights to the pay tv window and is the same deal they have now just extended, basically means new releases will not be seen on netflix for awhile

Just like the deal with NBC Universal, all of those shows will be posted on a 1 season delay. Revolution probably won't get posted until Fall 2013. Same goes with Fringe's final season.
