Fans of superhero shows based in the DC Comics universe like “The Flash,” ”Arrow” and “Gotham” might have to wait a lot longer for past seasons’ episodes to come to Netflix and Hulu.
Jeff Bewkes, the chief executive of DC-owner Time Warner Inc., told analysts on a conference call Wednesday that the company is considering whether to let online services like Netflix have its shows several years after they first air, rather than one year later. He said that could mean more older episodes are available on-demand to traditional cable customers.
Withdrawing shows from online services would make traditional cable and satellite TV packages more attractive. Time Warner is focused on “delivering even more value to consumers, especially those who subscribe to the traditional bundle,” Bewkes said.
