The agreements for Canada, the U.K. and Latin America also cover such new shows as "The Good Wife" and "Hawaii Five-0," depending on market.

LONDON - CBS Corp. and Netflix said Thursday they have extended their international licensing agreements that allow Netflix to stream select CBS Corp. shows in Canada, Latin America, the U.K. and Ireland. 

Financial and other terms of the agreements were not disclosed.
As the previous arrangements, the deals cover previous seasons of Showtime’s Dexter and such CBS library shows as Charmed, Jericho and The 4400, among others. 

On a territory-by-territory basis, previous seasons of such shows as The Good Wife, Hawaii Five-0, House of Lies and The Borgias will now also be available under the new deals, the companies said.
“Netflix is a great partner, and this has been a mutually beneficial relationship that has helped grow our respective businesses,” said Armando Nunez, president and CEO of the CBS Global Distribution Group. “It is an arrangement that showcases our premium content on Netflix’s world-class service in a way that complements our traditional worldwide licensing and adds to our overall international revenue.”
“We are delighted to be bringing more great CBS and Showtime series to our members throughout the world,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.
