New PBS Programming for US Netflix Members!

We’re excited to share that as of today we have expanded our partnership with PBS to bring great new programs to our service alongside existing favorites such as Masterpiece, NOVA, Nature, Ken Burns and PBS Kids.

Starting today, children and families can now watch the new pre-school shows Wild Kratts and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood in addition to classic favorites such as Caillou, Arthur and SuperWhy!   Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,  produced by The Fred Rogers Company, builds on the pioneering PBS series Mr. Rogers Neighborhood by using music to help teach social-emotional themes.   Wild Kratts is an animated series by Chris and Martin Kratt which takes kids on adventures around the globe to learn about animals and their habitats.

The deal includes a large selection of documentaries from celebrated filmmaker Ken Burns, including the award-winning mini-series Prohibition (available today) and film Central Park Five (coming this fall). 

Also beginning in the fall we’re excited to be the exclusive subscription home for all seasons of The Bletchley Circle, a gripping mystery drama from the UK.   Bletchley is the story of four seemingly ordinary women who become the unlikely investigators of a string of grisly murders in this drama set in post-war London.

All this and much more for fans of documentaries, independent films, British Dramas and educational kids programs.  We hope you enjoy it!

The Wild Ride Continues… Sons of Anarchy: Season 4 available in the US


You’ve asked us, “When will the next season of Sons of Anarchy be available?”  The answer, TODAY!  We’re revved to offer Season 4 to our US subscribers.

We first brought you Season 1 in 2011, introducing Jax and the rest of SAMCRO (Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original) crew to Netflix in this Hamlet-influenced drama (yes, that’s Shakespeare’s Hamlet).  Since then, existing fans have been reliving the drama by watching their favorite episodes, while others are discovering the motorcycle-outlaw adventure for the first time, catching up on Season 1, Season 2, and Season 3.  Whichever group you fall into, we’re glad you’re enjoying the ride!
