Netflix has been on the move as far as adding content to stay ahead of competitors like Amazon, and right now Netflix is working hard to add Warner Bros. content. In the past week, Netflix added some of the bigger Warner Bros. Television Group titles, like Revolution, Fringe, and The West Wing. Now, Netflix has made a deal to add Adult Swim and Cartoon Network content.
This deal will kick off on March 30th, at which point Netflix will be adding all of the past seasons of Cartoon Network shows like Adventure Time, Ben 10, Regular Show, and Johnny Bravo; Adult Swim content like Robot Chicken, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and Childrens Hospital; Warner Bros Animation’s Green Lantern; and Sony Pictures Television’s The Boondocks.
So, if you need to catch up with Mordecai and Rigby, Jake the dog and Finn the human, or Huey and Riley Freeman, it's going to be a very nice springtime on Netflix for you.
