Netflix Buys Streaming Rights to FX’s ‘The People V. O.J. Simpson’

Netflix has acquired streaming rights to “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” the highly rated 10-episode event series that aired on 21st Century Fox ’s FX network earlier this year […]. For FX Networks, selling rerun rights to Netflix showcases the competing interests that networks have to grapple with in an age of cord-cutting fears. On the one hand, FX’s shows including “Sons of Anarchy” have done well on the streaming service, which helps increase the value of the show and also provides additional revenue for 21st Century Fox. – Joe Flint, The Wall Street Journal
