NEW YORK (AP) - Netflix is making a push into documentaries, with the subscription service announcing deals on Thursday to premiere four new films in the next few months. Netflix has always made non-fiction films available to subscribers, but until recently they have been projects initially made for theatrical release or on television networks.
The first of the four new films to be released will be "Battered Bastards of Baseball," about a defunct minor league baseball team. Lisa Nishimura, head of Netflix's documentary unit, said the service is intentionally trying to present films on a wide variety of topics.

One of the films favoured to win this year is Amy, a portrait of the late singer and songwriter Amy Winehouse, directed by Asif Kapadia. Netflix said it now wants filmmakers to make their work specifically for the service, or use Netflix to offer the first wide distribution.
Its selling point to filmmakers is that Netflix will make the documentaries available on the service for a lengthy period of time.
But it is just one of five documentaries in the running.Talking Movies' Tom Brook explores the field.


Later this year the service will premiere "E-Team," a film about human rights workers from the makers of the Oscar-winning documentary "Born Into Brothels," and "Print the Legend," about 3-D printing.
TV networks and theatrical releases can offer a bigger burst of attention, but the films are generally only available for a short period.
