Netflix UK picks up Cartoon Network series
Netflix members in the UK and Ireland are gaining access to a range of Cartoon Network and Cartoonito content including Powerpuff Girls and LazyTown following a streaming deal between the world’s largest internet TV network and the kidsnet.
The deal, which marks the first time Cartoon Network content will be available to a subscription SVOD service in the UK market, includes seasons one and two of Powerpuff Girls, season one of LazyTown and seasons one and two of Courage the Cowardly Dog.
Other animated series available on the service as of today include seasons one and two of Regular Show, season one of Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends and seasons one and two of Samurai Jack.
Seasons one and two of Adventure Time will hit Netflix on December 15. Powerpuff Girls will debut on December 31.
The deal comes as Netflix continues to vie for eyeballs against its Amazon-owned European competitor LOVEFiLM, which snapped up hundreds of hours of content from Viacom earlier this fall and inked a content deal with Warner Bros. for a range of animated superhero-themed series.
