More ABC and Disney Content Coming to Netflix

Posted Thu Dec 9, 2010 at 07:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

You'll get shows like 'Grey's Anatomy' and 'Desperate Housewives' in addition to Disney Channel and ABC Family shows.

A new deal between Disney-ABC and Netflix means you'll be getting a lot more content to go with your Netflix subscription. There are new shows from Disney, ABC, and for the first time ever – ABC Family.

The arrangement between the two companies sadly does not give Netflix access to current run TV shows, but Disney does state that the minimum window for relevant programming is 15 days after the initial TV broadcast.

In addition to those shows already mentioned, Netflix will be streaming every episode of 'Lost' and 'Ugly Betty,' as well as 'Scrubs,' 'Phineas and Ferb,' and 'Good Luck Charlie.'

"Adding to our existing Disney-ABC lineup with great network and cable shows and opening up ABC Family for the first time are important steps in creating a wide and diverse selection of content Netflix members of all ages can watch," says Ted Sarandos, who add that TV content has proven to be extremely important to Netflix members.
