Netflix has acquired rights to stream library and current programming from the youth-oriented CW television network in a deal with co-owners Time Warner and CBS.

The House Judiciary Committee on Thursday approved a bill that would clear the way for Netflix and Facebook to enter a video-sharing arrangement.
