Netflix just announced that they have signed a deal to bring the Miramax catalog to the Netflix streaming service. Here are the important bits from the official press release:

"Beginning in June, Netflix members in the U.S. will be able to instantly watch several hundred Miramax movies, with dozens of titles being added on a rotating basis. The movies can be watched on multiple platforms, including TV, tablet, computer and mobile phones. Financial terms of the deal are not being disclosed.

Through this partnership, the Netflix library gains a variety of films which collectively have 284 Academy Award nominations, across 83 films, with 68 wins, including the Best Picture winners 'The English Patient' and 'Shakespeare in Love.' Iconic titles such as 'Bad Santa' 'Chasing Amy,' 'Cinema Paradiso,' 'Clerks,' 'Cold Mountain,' 'From Dusk Till Dawn,' 'Good Will Hunting,' 'Kill Bill' Volumes I and II, 'Muriel’s Wedding,' 'The Piano,' 'Pulp Fiction,' 'Reindeer Games' and many of the 'Halloween,' 'Scary Movie,' 'Scream' and 'Spy Kids' movies will be available over time."

While it seems that the bulk of the horror titles will not be available with the first batch of films released in June, it's nice to see the Netflix horror section continue to grow. We hope that the Miramax deal includes HD versions of their films, but specific title details were not revealed in the press release.
