Studios, broadcasters, and Netflix in tangled web

|By:, SA News Editor

A growing number of networks are reportedly saying they won't buy new shows from TV studios unless they can retain the streaming rights until the current season ends.

FX and Turner are two of the networks which have drawn a line in the sand, according to Vulture.

The actions from the networks are a calculated shot at Netflix (NFLX -1%) which has disrupted the ad model by striking lucrative deals with studios for early looks at TV shows.

It's put pure heroin into the veins of studio executives," laments one network exec.
