Netflix has signed a licensing deal with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, giving the online video company exclusive rights to stream MGM movies in the U.K. and Ireland.
The service will be available from early 2012. The deal will give U.K. Netflix users access to MGM titles, such as Peter Jackson’s upcoming Hobbit movies. These films will be available within one year of their theatrical release, the company claims.

Viewers will also be able to access older MGM titles, such as Fargo, The Usual Suspects, West Side Story, and The Amityville Horror, Netflix says in a press release.
