Netflix? More like Netf-LIT. In the United Kingdom, at least.
It has been announced that Netflix UK has picked up the streaming rights for Black Lightning, where the show will land on Tuesday, January 23… only one week after its debut in the United States, where the show will air on The CW television network.
Streaming deals like this one should also help with the long-term success of Black Lightning when there are international broadcasters interested.
Big thanks to Andy Behbakht, producer of the Black Lightning Podcast, for the tip. We promise this is the one and only “Lit” pun you’ll find on this website.
