BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. and NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As vacations
wind down, school supplies stack up and everyone begins to get back into the
school-year routine, Netflix has even more to offer families as they head back
to school. Today Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) and Scholastic Media, a

education and media company, announced a distribution agreement that will make
popular television series and video content produced by Scholastic Media
available to Netflix subscribers in the United States, Canada, UK, Ireland and

Caterpillar and Other Stories and Stellaluna, which are now available in the

consumers on TV or online.

"When we first added The Magic School Bus and Goosebumps for our members in
the US and Canada earlier this summer we knew they would perform well, but
after seeing just how popular they were we decided to expand our relationship
with Scholastic and bring these great shows to more of our markets," said Ted

the shows are as popular as ever – which is validated by the Netflix
