Netflix Instant

Once simply an on-demand Internet streaming service, Netflix Instant changed the streaming platform for the better by becoming a distributer of original content. Netflix Instant not only acquired the rights to instantly stream popular movie and TV titles, but it's also competing with major TV networks by distributing original series, such as Emmy-nominated 'House of Cards,' 'Orange Is the New Black' and the latest season of 'Arrested Development.' In addition to expanding with more scripted series, Netflix Instant will become the destination for Marvel's highly anticipated 'The Defenders' series, which will include standalone series for 'Daredevil,' 'Luke Cage,' 'Jessica Jones' and 'Iron Fist' before culminating in an 'Avengers'-style miniseries team-up event.
