Netflix (NFLX +2.6%) strikes another content deal with Warner Bros. (TWX -0.7%); this one involves Cartoon Network shows such as Adventure Time, Johnny Bravo, and Aqua Teen Hunger Force, as well as (starting in 2014) the TNT series Dallas. Last week, Netflix announced a deal to carry a slew of serialized dramas produced by Warner Bros.' TV studio ops.

    Are they minting billion dollar platinum coins to pay for these deals?

    The only thing that is exclusive to NFLX is Dallas in Jan 2014....good luck with two seasons of one show next year. Not exactly "wow" type news.

    As I understand it, NFLX does not expense the cost of these content deals on its balance sheet until the content itself becomes available to its subscribers. Thus, it gets credit for the increased content (increased share price) long before it has to pay the piper.
