Netflix may get a small dose of animated movies via new streaming deal with DreamWorks Animation.Netflix may get a small dose of animated movies via new streaming deal with DreamWorks Animation.

According to Bloomberg News, the deal would kick in after the pay TV agreement with HBO expires, but a source tells THR that HBO has offered to end DWA's output deal two years early because HBO recently signed a pact with Summit Entertainment that gives the pay cabler 10-12 live action films a year versus the two animated films a year that DWA offers. Plus, animated fare is more common now that HBO content partners Warner Bros., Fox and Universal are all producing those films.

Trailer for Super Mario Galaxy 2 from Nintendo's Media Summit available online.Trailer for Super Mario Galaxy 2 from Nintendo's Media Summit available online.

I wasn't that big of a fan of the first Super Mario Galaxy to warrant running out and buying the sequel. This seriously looks like more of the same video game except for a couple of new gameplay mechanics (and the inclusion of Yoshi).  Maybe this would've lent itself better as DLC content. Oh... right.

The top five video game franchises that need to go downloadable.The top five video game franchises that need to go downloadable.

Author of this article makes some good points (especially in regards to the Tony Hawk series).  The Beatles: Rock Band / Rock Band 2 interpolation would be nice but there might be a few licensing reasons why it was done that way.

Basically, the DLC content will fill in holes to make complete albums of the included songs. You can still play Octopus's Garden as much as you like.
