Netflix has signed a deal with the CW to exclusively stream all past series of the network's shows in the US. The streaming firm has the rights to scripted series like 'The Flash' and 'The Vampire Diaries', and starting with the 2016-2017 season, will air episodes of new shows like 'Supergirl' just eight days after the series finishes on the CW.

It's a multi-year deal. Other CW shows Netflix will stream include 'Frequency', 'No Tomorrow', 'Riverdale', 'Legends of Tomorrow', 'Jane the Virgin' and 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend'.

"Netflix members in the US love the great line-up of series from the CW, and we are thrilled to extend the relationship and bring those shows to our members exclusively now, just eight days after their season finales," said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix. "This is a great step forward with a valued network partner to give fans exactly what they want, when and how they want it."

The CW Network is a joint venture between CBS Corporation and Warner Bros. Entertainment.

US streaming rival Hulu previously showed episodes from The CW's series the day after they were broadcast, but that deal is soon to expire.
