Online movie rental service Netflix Inc. on Monday announced an agreement with Disney-ABC Television Group that will make several new television series available for instant streaming.
Los Gatos, Calif. based Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) said members will be able to instantly watch the first five seasons of the ABC franchise “Lost,” seasons four and five of “Desperate Housewives,” season five of “Grey’s Anatomy,” and seasons one and two of “Legend of the Seeker.”
Overall, the agreement extends the online relationship between Netflix and Disney-ABC Television Group, which announced their first digital licensing deal last September. That agreement centered on original series from Disney Channel, including “Hannah Montana,” “Wizards of Waverly Place,” “The Suite Life on Deck,” and Disney Channel’s two newest original series, “JONAS” and “Sonny with a Chance.”
That deal, which will continue, makes episodes available the day after broadcast.
