BMG Inks Exclusive Publishing Deal With Netflix

BMG has entered into an exclusive agreement with Netflix to manage and administer the network’s music publishing rights outside the United States. The agreement includes scores, transition cues, themes, and feature songs for all content owned by Netflix for its Netflix Originals, including TV series, feature films, documentaries, and other original content.

The world’s leading internet TV network, Netflix has over 93 million subscribers in over 190 countries who use the service to watch more than 125 million hours of TV, movies, and other content every day.

“It is an understatement to say we are excited to be working with Netflix,” said Zach Katz, BMG US President Repertoire & Marketing. “This agreement is a significant endorsement of the BMG team and platform from one of the most forward-thinking and innovative entertainment companies in the world. It also highlights the particular strength of Keith Hauprich (Deputy General Counsel, BMG US) and his film and TV publishing team.”

“After a long process of selecting the right partner for Netflix, we are delighted to be able to announce this new partnership with BMG and look forward to getting started with the team there,” said Dominic Houston, Director of Music Licensing at Netflix. “We were particularly impressed by the commercial and technology expertise of BMG, and are excited to see what opportunities we can develop together.”
