As digital distribution continues to positively impact its bottom line, Corus Entertainment has forged a content deal with Netflix for a mix of exclusive and non-exclusive streaming rights to Nickelodeon content in Canada.
Corus, which serves as the sole Canadian distributor of Nickelodeon’s catalog of current content and library titles, is sending classic series like iCarly, Sam & Cat and Victorious to the SVOD giant on a non-exclusive basis. The deal gives Netflix exclusive Canadian rights to Nick series The Legend of Korra (pictured).
This is not Corus’s first SVOD deal for Nick content in Canada. In January, the media conglomerate inked a streaming deal with SVOD Shomi for a slate of Nick content that encompassed 700 half-hour episodes from 21 series, as well as the exclusive rights to Penguins of Madagascar, Rabbids Invasion, Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Avatar: The Last Airbender and Bubble Guppies.
Nickelodeon’s current lineup can be found on Corus channels YTV and Nickelodeon Canada.
