Netflix makes a deal for Adult Swim and Cartoon Network content. Ooooooooohh!
Beginning March 30, 2013, complete past seasons of such great Cartoon Network shows as Adventure Time, Ben 10, Regular Show, Johnny Bravo, Warner Bros. Animation’s Green Lantern will become available on the popular “Just for Kids” section of the world’s leading Internet TV subscription service.
At the same time, Adult Swim shows, such as Robot Chicken, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Sony Pictures Television’s The Boondocks and the Emmy®-winning Childrens Hospital from WBTVG’s Studio 2.0, will be made available.
Coming exclusively to Netflix in January 2014 will be season one and two of the critically acclaimed Warner Horizon Television-produced TNT series Dallas.
“We are delighted that Netflix will become the exclusive over-the-top streaming subscription destination for past seasons of favorite Cartoon Network and Adult Swim titles,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer of Netflix. “We’re also thrilled to be able to offer the latest seasons of Dallas, one of the greatest all-time guilty pleasures.”
“The industry has evolved so that TV Everywhere and subscription video on-demand services can coexist with the appropriate windowing strategy, while allowing for more content flexibility to meet consumer demand in the changing digital landscape,” said Deborah K. Bradley, senior vice president of program acquisitions for Turner Broadcasting. “We’re happy to offer our popular programming to Netflix members, as SVOD services have become another way to grow audiences and can introduce new viewers to our programming.”
“We are thrilled to continue our great relationship with Netflix giving their subscribers access to more and more of our programming,” said Ken Werner, President, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. “This represents another evolutionary step in the TV ecosystem working with Netflix, on the SVOD platform, to improve the consumer experience while being respectful of existing business models.”

You had me at Robot Chicken, but the boondocks is icing on the cake

Boondocks season 1 is icing. After that, I think it got too focused on Riley, Grandad and Uncle Ruckus, and lost some of the poignancy of the first season.

Stinkmeaner is by far the most offensive... Yet the funnest character on the whole show. But I have to agree, the last season was a bit disapointing.
But now this mean BLACK DYNAMITE will be available too. With that in mind, a great quote from the immortal "Nature Boy" Rick Flair comes to mind and it goes ...

Admittedly, you are right, and I apologize that it is a bit off topic. But, I would counter with two things: 1) Netflix is one of the most popular mobile apps around, and 2) this is awesome news!

This is good news, besides if this was a phone news site alone then all the Tablet stuff would have to be axed as well. It's not that serious Bernoulli, more content can never be bad news, well unless it's...

I hope this is just the beginning because Netflix sucks at adding content .

Finally! Now, if only they would add some Tim and Eric, I'd be perfectly happy.

Oh wow, I completely forgot that the Adult Swim catalog could very well include Tim and Eric, and Tom Goes to the Mayor! Fingers crossed on that.
