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.
