Multiple sources are reporting that Lucha Underground is super close to coming to a deal with Netflix! Sources are also claiming that the deal would involve adding the complete first season to Netflix’s instant streaming service. Because Netflix is one of the world’s leading on-demand services and have millions of subscribers worldwide, this would likely increase LU‘s reach and generate more interest. This is especially good, considering that El Rey Network is still unavailable to many households (only around 40 million), despite the channel’s increasing availability on many packages such as cable and satellite.
Also, Lucha Underground just became available on iTunes, with the complete first season ready to purchase and Season 2 episodes available the day after they air on El Rey.
