Miramax is the latest film studio to announce streaming agreements with on-demand movie service Netflix ahead of their launch in the United Kingdom and Ireland early next year. Since October, Netflix has announced content agreements with MGM and Lionsgate in the two countries.
Netflix, the subscription-based on-demand streaming media service, has forged a deal with motion picture giant MGM to stream first-run feature films in the UK and Ireland. Netflix are seemingly readying their service for an expected launch in both countries in early 2012.
