Netflix says it will stream certain movies from The Weinstein Co., including "The Artist," under an exclusive licensing agreement.
The companies say their multiyear agreement will cover foreign-language movies, documentaries and some other films in the Weinstein vault and make them available for instant viewing on Netflix.
Netflix Inc. says it will get some films within a year of their release in movie theaters. It says it will show "The Artist," a silent movie that has received 10 Academy Award nominations, before it appears on premium cable-TV networks.
The companies aren't disclosing financial terms.
Netflix shares rose $3.30, or 2.7 percent, to $125.15 Tuesday morning.
Netflix is based in Los Gatos, Calif.
