Netflix announced another multi-year content licensing deal on Tuesday that will bring such films as “The Hunger Games,” “The Artist,” and “Midnight in Paris” to its subscribers in Latin America and Brazil, according to Variety.

"We are excited to now have such a fantastic flow of commercially successful and critically-acclaimed films for our members in the region," said Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer. "Telefilms has great taste and a great track record that now extends over 50 years and we are proud to be working with such a distinguished and successful company."
