Hunger Games to be on Netflix One Year After Release!

Netflix has signed another major content deal ahead of its much-anticipated UK launch next year, enabling the firm to offer new movies from Lionsgate, such as The Hunger Games.

The American company has agreed a multi-year licensing deal with Lionsgate, making it the studio's exclusive subscription streaming partner for first-run films in the UK and Ireland.

Under the deal, Netflix will enable subscribers to watch a range of Lionsgate titles in the pay-TV window on TVs, tablets, games consoles, mobile phones and computers - meaning it will stream the films at the same time as they are shown on Sky Movies.

New Lionsgate movies will appear on Netflix within one year of their theatrical release, including The Hunger Games starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, blockbuster action sequel The Expendables 2 and the recently-announced remake of Dirty Dancing.
