Netflix / Epix

As long as there's good titles hitting every week, we do our best to provide you with a list of new arrivals on Netflix Instant. The past two weeks haven't been worth an update, but perhaps that's because the people with Netflix have been busy securing a plethora of new titles for the streaming service. THR reports Netflix and cable channel Epix have struck an exclusive, multi-year deal which will give Netflix Instant a collection of new releases and library titles beginning September 1st. The deal, which is currently set for five years, includes a wide array of films from Paramount, Lionsgate and MGM for your viewing pleasure. Read on!

Though we may not see any new releases from MGM over the next couple years, plenty will still be made available much sooner. After 90 days on premium pay TV and on demand subscriptions new releases like Iron Man 2, Dinner for Schmucks and The Expendables and more will be available on Netflix Instant. In addition, other (great) movies that will be joining the streaming line-up in early September include The Indiana Jones Trilogy, The Godfather Trilogy, Iron Man, Star Trek (2009), G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Paranormal Activity and many, many more. This deal only strengthens Netflix's instant library along with other deals with Relativity Media and Starz. Stay tuned as we'll surely have a sizable update on the new titles when they hit Netflix Instant in a little over two weeks!

    Now would be the appropriate time for a nerdgasm! This is great news. I've been trying to convince my cousin to get Netflix since I got it roughly a year ago, so I can imagine this will be the icing on the cake. Brand new flicks to watch instantly within three months? That's friggin awesome. Thanks for the post.

    Does anyone know if this will include the old MGM library that Turner currently owns? I would guess not, seeing as MGM doesnt technically own it, but I'm hoping to find more classics on instant watch.

    Is Indiana Jones still considered a trilogy? I mean, I know most of us would like to forget Crystal Skull, but can we watched it. We can't un-watch it.

    I gave up my cable (Comcast) and Netflix has been a lifesaver...I dont even miss my cable service anymore...the current library of instant play keeps me content...way to go Netflix....

    They need a new interface. Their interface is awful I hate how it never shows you new releases. But this awesome.
  • Dave Lister, J.M.C.
    The only problem, with the Starz selections, on Netflix instant viewing, is they don't stream in HD. Here's hoping that is not the case, with these new Epix titles.
  • R in SEKS
    September 1st has come and gone. The selection at Netflix doesn't seem to be much better for instantly watching than it was before.
