Netflix to Stream 'Avengers' and 'Hunger Games' in Early 2013

The service will get the movies just 90 days after Epix.

One of the common complaints heard about Netflix streaming is that there just aren't enough new movies. Summer blockbusters and other new releases tend not to be present on Netflix until they're no longer worth crowing about.

The company's newest acquisitions are a nice step up. Netflix will not only have 'The Hunger Games' streaming in early 2013, but the smash hit 'The Avengers.' Availability is thanks to a streaming deal with pay-channel Epix, which will start airing both movies 90 days earlier than the Netflix release.
