Movies Are Skipping Pay TV Period for Netflix

Independent movie companies are flocking to Netflix instead of television for their pay TV deals. According to The Los Angeles Times, Open Road Films, a distributer launched by AMC Entertainment Inc. and Regal Entertainment Group, is the latest of these distributers to sign a deal with Netflix, giving Netflix exclusive rights to movies during their “pay TV window,” which typically is six to eight months after a film’s theatrical release. Normally, this is when premium channels such as HBO and Showtime are able to air movies.
