Netflix scores deals with Turner, Warner Bros.

The agreements include the rights to stream past episodes from the Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, and Warner Bros. Animation.


Netflix users will soon have more shows to stream courtesy of the company's latest studio deals.

New multiyear agreements with Turner Broadcasting and Warner Bros. Television Group will provide Netflix with complete past seasons from the Cartoon Network, Warner Bros. Animation, and Adult Swim. Episodes from the current TNT series "Dallas" will also saddle up for the ride.

Various Cartoon Network shows will pop up on Netflix's "Just for Kids" section. Titles will include "Adventure Time," "Ben 10," "Regular Show," and "Johnny Bravo." And Warner Bros. Animation's "Green Lantern" will shine its light onto the online TV and movie service.

The new shows will debut on Netflix starting March 30.

Netflix has been busy cooking up other deals lately.

The company signed an agreement with Warner Bros. last week to make "Revolution," "Fringe," "The West Wing," and "666 Park Avenue" available for streaming. Last month, Netflix inked a major deal with Walt Disney to stream films from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation, Marvel, and Disneynature. But that deal won't kick in until 2016.

This also promises to be a busy year for Netflix in original programming. The online service will premiere its first original TV series, "House of Cards," on February 1 and launch new episodes of "Arrested Development" in May .
