Stan, the Nine Network and Fairfax owned subscription streaming outfit has just signed an exclusivity deal with Warner Bros. that brings a host of classic and new TV shows, and blockbuster movies, to the streaming platform.

The highlight of the deal includes all 236 episodes of the hit sitcom 'Friends' (rights to which were secured by Netflix for its U.S. version of the service), all episodes of 'The West Wing', 'The OC' and JJ Abram’s 'Fringe'.

The deal also includes newer shows such as the first three seasons of Kevin Bacon's 'The Following'. The first season of 'iZombie', the hit drama from the creator of Veronica Mars, will also be available and the second season will also be fast-tracked to Stan in October, day and date with the US broadcast!

Other shows available to Stan subscribers as part of the deal include 'Constantine', 'Selfie', 'A to Z', Rebel Wilson’s 'Super Fun Night', 'The Flash', 'The Last Ship', 'Hart of Dixie' and 'Forever', many of which will be SVOD exclusives to Stan.

Stan's Content and Product Director Nick Foward hailed the deal as a significant one for the fledgling Australian SVOD market.

"Our partnership with Warner Bros. is the most significant since launch in terms of bringing outstanding, exclusive premiere shows and some of the most popular TV series of all time to Stan,” says Foward, before adding, “By adding hundreds of hours of new content to Stan’s lineup, the deal further cements our position as the SVOD service with the highest quality and largest library of content in Australia.”
