You Can Soon Stream ‘The Artist’ and Other Oscar Contenders on Netflix

The Artist
The Weinstein Company

Netflix has certainly had its share of woes over the past year, but it recently scored a big victory by signing an exclusive deal with The Weinstein Company — a deal that will allow Netflix to stream flicks from the movie powerhouse well before pay cable networks get their hands on them.

The arrangement means Netflix can stream recent releases like Oscar front-runner ‘The Artist,’ Ralph Fiennes’ ‘Coriolanus,’ Madonna’s directorial effort ‘W.E.’ and the celebrated high-school football documentary ‘Undefeated’ within a year of their theatrical runs. Having early access to the Weinstein catalog will be a boost for the beleaguered Netflix and its often-paltry “new releases” section (even if no one really wants to see ‘W.E.’).

“The content lets Netflix differentiate itself from competitors like Amazon Prime, or pay TV like HBO,” said Justin Colatosti, an analyst with Dawson James Securities in Boca Raton, Florida.

In addition to the new deal with Weinstein, Netflix is hoping to regain some of the consumer traction it’s lost over the past year by offering at least five exclusive original series on its service by the middle of 2013.

In the meantime, check out the best new titles streaming on Netflix for the month of February.
