Netflix subscribers in the UK and Ireland will soon be able to stream Miramax content to their TVs, tablets, set-top boxes, and smartphones. The deal joins those signed with MGM and Lionsgate UK, leaving Netflix subscribers in the UK and Ireland with plenty of choice content when the service launches in early 2012. However, unlike those other deals, the Miramax agreement doesn't boast exclusive streaming rights for new films during the pay-TV window.

The deal secures streaming access to catalog titles such as Pulp Fiction, Cold Mountain, Gangs of New York, Chocolat, and Chicago to name just a few. Miramax titles are already available to subscribers in the US and Latin America.
