Netflix ponies up $2m per episode of The Blacklist


Netflix has signed a deal for the rights to the first season of The Blacklist for $2M per episode, reports Deadline.

The amount is believed to be the largest VOD deal ever for an off-network TV series.

The Blacklist  is distributed by Sony Pictures TV (NYSE:SNE).

A weekend launch of the show on Netflix is possible.

What to watch: The company is sticking with a strategy to pay more for exclusive first window rights - instead of signing joint syndication deals with other pay-TV operators - on its view the strategy helps propel subscriber growth

    As for Netflix, if you can't use customer data to figure out how to produce desirable content, then you have little choice but to continue overpaying for it.
