| by Michael Allen

Netflix and the Warner Bros. Television have signed a licensing deal that allows Netflix to offer its subscribers prior seasons of eight television shows produced by Warner Bros., including 'Revolution,' 'Longmire' and 'The Following.' 

The agreement also includes potential future shows, reports the Associated Press.

Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer, said in a statement on Monday: "This unprecedented agreement brings to Netflix members earlier and more exclusively than ever before complete previous seasons of some of the most prominent and successful shows on network and cable television."

In December, Netflix landed the U.S. rights to show Disney movies shortly after they leave theaters.
