Lionsgate is in the process of acquiring the exclusive rights to stream AMC‘s Mad Men. According to The Wall Street Journal, the deal is estimated to cost Netflix in the range of $1 million an episode.

The first four seasons of Mad Men will be available to Netflix subscribers beginning on July 27th 2011.  When season five is completed, Netflix will put up the episodes from that season online. The agreement runs through the rest of Mad Men’s scheduled seasons.

The prospect of having Mad Men in an easy-to-watch place seems too good to be true.  ‘Mad Men’ is easily one of the best shows on television and Netflix has grabbed an incredible title to supply their growing streaming television market.
