Netflix Will Stream CBS Shows Starting In April

Now that Netflix will face some formidable video streaming competition in the form of Redbox and Amazon, it will need to keep adding content to remain in the front of the pack.

According to Deadline, Netflix signed a deal with CBS that will bring series that have gone off the air to the streaming service. Several shows — many of them so old, they were referred to by your parents as “programs” — will be stream-able in April. They include the original Hawaii Five-0, The Twilight Zone, Cheers, Family Ties and The Andy Griffith Show. More recent fare such as Frasier and Medium will also be included.
