Netflix signs licensing deal for Cartoon Network & Adult Swim content

Netflix has reached yet another big programing deal with Warner Bros. today, which should improve the number of children’s programming options as well as options for late night hooligans, who enjoy adult cartoons.

VentureMeatThe deal will give Netflix’s streaming network shows from Cartoon Network, including Johnny Bravo, Regular Show, (the greatest show of all time) Adventure Time, and several others. Shows from the channel’s late night Adult Swim block of programming — Robot Chicken, The Boondocks, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and others — will also appear on Netflix.

The additional cartoon programing should give Netflix a nice edge over Hulu Plus and Amazon Prime — both of which are also working hard to increase activity among its younger users.

The new content will begin appearing on Netflix in March 2013, alongside Texan drama Dallas, which Netflix has a streaming exclusive for, oddly enough.

This is the second big licensing deal Netflix has made with Warner Bros. in 2013. Last week the company announced its deal to bring eight big prime time WB shows to its streaming network, including Fringe, The West Wing, and others.
