Among the new shows set to land on LoveFilm Instant are The Good Wife, Blue Bloods, Californication and Dexter, as well as the classic 1960s Star Trek shows alongside the more recent Star Trek Voyager series.

“We’re excited to partner with Lovefilm and their terrific subscription service on an agreement that will bring their UK and German subscribers a range of CBS content that audiences around the world are very passionate about,” said Amando Nuñez, president and CEO of CBS Global Distribution Group.

“This is another example of the growing licensing opportunities available for CBS’ world class content in a dynamic global marketplace.”

It’s been a busy couple of days for the service: just last week they announced that The Walking Dead TV series would be hitting the platform in the UK exclusively, while the company have also rolling out redesigned versions of the streaming application for the Xbox 360 and Sony’s Bravia TVs.
