Netflix adds content from Starz

Netflix will announce today that it will offer content from Starz Entertainment which will add about 2,500 movies, television shows and music concerts. This greatly enhances Netflix's online streaming offerings (including movies such as Ratatouille, The Pursuit of Happyness, Pirates of the Caribbean). Netflix also released its API which developers can use to create applications to access Netflix's content database (for example, this will allow third-party development of an iPhone/iPod touch Netflix application). And last week, Netflix signed a deal with CBS and Disney to deliver their content over the Internet (including CSI, Numb3rs, NCIS, and Hannah Montana). (Sources: WSJ, Engadget)
