Netflix streams are could very well increase ten-fold for some 80s geeks that still love their childhood cartoons.
That's because Hasbro, the name behind many board games and cartoons of the past, has signed a multi-year deal with Netflix to enable streaming of some of the greatest commercial franchises of all time, including TRANSFORMERS, G.I. JOE: Real American Heroes, JEM and the Holograms, Transformers: Beast Wars, and Transformers: Rescue Bots.
All of Hasbro's content will be available on both Netflix and Netflix: Just For Kids (Netflix for kids, age 12 and younger). Cindy Holland, Vice President of Content Acquisition at Netflix, had this to say about it:
“We are very excited to be working with Hasbro Studios...This deal allows us to offer even more great kids’ programming to our members, both adults and kids alike, including new seasons of My Little Pony, Transformers Prime, and Pound Puppies after the season finale airs on The Hub.Hasbro Studios President Stephen Davis said this:
“We are pleased that consumers will now be able to watch our award-winning programming on Netflix, the leading internet subscription service...We are making our content easy to access, anytime, anywhere and on all platforms where audiences are consuming content and this is a big step forward with our all screen strategy.”
