TED Talks joins Netflix's stable of streaming content

With the addition of TEDTalks, Netflix is extending is reach beyond just movies and television shows.

Netflix is on an unrelenting hunt for new content, and is snatching up partners wherever it can. The latest additions to the service's library of content are the popular TED Talks, which are available on Netflix right now in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, UK and Ireland.

Netlfix, however, won't be presenting the content in three or even fifteen minute bursts. Instead, the service plans to group the talks in two-hour blocks according to their general themes - space, nature, sex, etc.

Fourteen shows hit Netflix in the first batch, with Netflix planning to add more as time goes on.

Of course, the best part about the addition of the TED Talks is that it democratizes the lectures even further than they have already been, opening them up many more viewers for a fairly insignificant sum.
