Netflix and NBC Universal Deal for More TV Streaming

Posted Mon Sep 27, 2010 at 01:00 PM PDT by Dick Ward

The new arrangement includes next day airings of 'Saturday Night Live' and prior seasons of several previously unavailable shows.

It's been a big week for the folks at Netflix. They introduced streaming-only subscriptions in Canada, hinted at a similar service in the states and now have made a deal with NBC that will open up whole new avenues of content.

For starters, Netflix will be able to stream episodes of 'Saturday Night Live' the day after they air. It's a pretty big step forward and also includes hundreds of past 'SNL' episodes. Also a part of the deal, Netflix will be streaming all episodes from the past season of shows like '30 Rock,' 'Law & Order: SVU,' and 'The Office.'

Also up for streaming next week – 75 episodes of 'Battlestar Galactica' and the entire catalog of past seasons of 'Monk' and 'Psych.'
