Netflix to Add New ABC Content for Streaming

Netflix and Disney-ABC announced a new licensing agreement between the two companies that will allow Netflix to stream hundreds of episodes from the ABC Television Network, Disney Channel, and, for the first time, ABC Family over the Internet.

The agreement will add significantly to the growing selection of movies and TV episodes that can currently be streamed from Netflix.  Once made available to Netflix (which, for relevant programming, will be no earlier than 15 days after the initial telecast), episodes can be streamed instantly with Netflix.

Among the new content, Netflix users will be able to enjoy:

-Prior season episodes of Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, and Brothers and Sisters, all of which are among the network’s most successful and popular TV franchises in recent years.

-Every episode of Lost and Ugly Betty

-Each season of several hit series from ABC studios, including Scrubs and Reaper

-A host of content from the Disney Channel, including Phineas and Ferb and Good Luck Charlie, updated and expanding offerings of The Suite Life on Deck and Wizards of Waverly Place, and library offerings from Hannah Montana and The Suite Life of Zack & Cody

-Content from ABC Family, including Greek, Make It Or Break It, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, and Melissa & Joey.

In addition to the hundreds of TV episodes included in the agreement, Disney Channel and ABC Family movies will also be available to watch.
