Better Call Saul released exclusively on Netflix in 2014

Better Call Saul will be released exclusively on Netflix in 2014, shortly after its broadcast in the US.
The Breaking Bad spin-off, starring Bob Odenkirk, will be available to members of the streaming service every week after its airing in the US – the same deal struck for the recently-finished Breaking Bad.
In the US and Canada, the complete first series of Saul will only be available to Netflix members after its season finale is broadcast on AMC Networks, which means that Netflix UK members will have the show available to stream before subscribers in America.
Starring Bob Odenkirk and co-created and executive produced by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, Better Call Saul will follow mall-based super lawyer Saul Goodman (think Lionel Hutz, but successful) in the years before he became Walter White’s attorney. From parking tickets to mass murder, from slip-and-fall to bond fraud, Saul handles it all.
“Breaking Bad is widely recognized as one of the great TV experiences in this new golden age of television,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer. “It has also proven very popular with Netflix subscribers around the world. This spin-off promises to continue its tradition of powerful storytelling. We are proud to be in business with Sony Pictures Television to bring Saul Goodman to our subscribers around the world.”
“Coming off of the overwhelming success of Breaking Bad, we’re excited to continue our collaboration with Vince, as well as Peter Gould, and that fans around the world will be able to embrace Saul.” said Steve Mosko, President of Sony Pictures Television.
