Streaming TV aggregator Netflix has jumped everyone when it comes to bagging the rights to show forthcoming Batman prequel Gotham, signing up the show before a single episode has even been screened.

According to Deadline, the deal between Netflix and Batman owner Warner Bros. sees the streaming service become the "...exclusive subscription video on demand home" of the upcoming series, which will launch, in the US at least, on the Fox network this September. And as the deal's global, it ought to be on Netflix here soon after. [Deadline via The Verge]
