The Muppeteers will launch a new streaming streaming service in 2018 exclusively to its Netflix subscribers, the network announced Wednesday.
The service will launch in select territories around the world starting in late 2018, Netflix said.
It’s part of Netflix’s push to expand the reach of its original programming, which have historically been sold through traditional pay TV providers like ESPN and HBO.
Netflix said it has already started testing a new service for subscribers in North America.
The Muppet Show’s streaming service, which will be available in the U.S. and Canada and in some markets in Europe, will include a wide range of original content including classic shows and specials, as well as new episodes from its library.
Netflix also said it will be making a number of investments in original content in 2018.
The company’s slate of original programming includes original dramas and comedies, documentaries and dramas, a slate of shows based on films from the Motion Picture Association of America and the Television Academy, a variety of original short films, a documentary series, and new original content.
