Netflix has done something right, finally: the video-streaming service has signed a deal with DreamWorks to show the studio’s films and television specials—the first time a major Hollywood supplier has chosen the web over pay television, according to The New York Times. The deal, which analysts estimate is worth $30 million per movie to DreamWorks, replaces a former deal DreamWorks had with HBO. In February, Netflix is expected to lose the rights to stream films from Walt Disney Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment.
