Netflix picks up 'DreamWorks Dragons'

By Brian Stelter, CNN

Netflix is furthering its relationship with DreamWorks Animation, picking up two new seasons of the children's television show based on the "How to Train Your Dragon" film franchise.

The two companies announced the deal on Thursday. It comes about a year after DreamWorks committed to bring about 300 hours worth of original programming to Netflix, and two weeks before "How to Train Your Dragon 2" bows in theaters.

Netflix and rivals like Amazon (AMZNFortune 500)and Hulu have been competing to have the best selection of shows for kids - a response to theexpectation that programming always be available on-demand.

The announcement is another instance of a TV show moving from a traditional cable channel to a streaming service.
