The agreement covers eight of Warner Bros. shows.

Netflix has signed a licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Television which will cover a series of new TV shows.

The agreement includes eight of Warner Bros. shows as well as potential future shows.

The shows to be covered include Revolution, 666 Park Avenue, The Following, Longmire, Political Animals, Chuck, Fringe and The West Wing.

Shows can also be made available through traditional syndication windows, electronic sell-through services and on a catch-up basis for recently aired episodes.

Warner Bros. Television president Bruce Rosenblum said: "SVOD has become an important window for our serialized dramas, allowing viewers a chance to discover a series that before might have been intimidating to tune into mid-run.

"We continue to adapt our business models to include SVOD when it makes sense for the long-term value of each show and are thrilled to have Netflix as one of our distribution partners," Rosenblum said.

Netflix had signed a content agreement with Disney in December last year which starts in 2016.

In December 2011, Netflix and BBC Worldwide signed a digital licensing agreement that will bring a broad range of BBC series to Netflix members in the UK and Ireland.

Netflix currently has over 30 million members in 40 countries around the world.
