Netflix Offers $100,000 Per Episode for New TV Shows

More

Netflix is big. And growing. But to continue that march forward, they're going to need to keep finding new and better content to offer to consumers. Word now is that the company is willing to pay somewhere between $75,000 and $100,000 per episode of television shows.

Netflix isn't offering $75,000-$100,000 for a season of shows, it's willing to pay that much for a SINGLE episode.

The Post says a war is breaking out among content companies that make the TV shows, and the networks that air the shows over rights.

To date, Netflix has only spent $350 million on gaining rights to TV shows and movies.
