June 11 (UPI) -- Netflix said it has reached a deal to stream several of Barbra Streisand's beloved television specials.

"Netflix is also thrilled to present a special edition of Barbra Streisand's classic movie A Star Is Born (1976), including never-before-seen footage of Ms. Streisand performing an instrumental version of 'Evergreen' for the first time, and added footage to the iconic 'With One More Look at You/Watch Closely Now' medley finale," a Netflix news release said.
