NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - Netflix said Friday that it has expanded a distribution deal with News Corp.'s Twentieth Century Fox that will make some past seasons of U.S. network Fox hit show "Glee" and FX's "Sons of Anarchy," as well as older series, available for instant streaming.
The expanded multi-year deal covers the first season of "Glee" and the first two seasons of "Sons of Anarchy" starting Friday, along with such library shows as "Ally McBeal" and "The Wonder Years."
Fox will also make a number of library movies available to Netflix after their premium pay TV license periods conclude, the companies said.
Financial details of the deal weren't disclosed.
Their previous deal covered such shows as "24," "Arrested Development," "Lie to Me," "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" and "X-Files."
"Our expanded non-exclusive streaming arrangement with Netflix maintains Fox's flexibility to effectively manage both the content we offer, and the appropriate window of availability relative to our other distribution partnerships," said Peter Levinsohn, president of new media and digital distribution for Fox Filmed Entertainment.
"We've worked closely with Fox for the last year to provide our members access to some of the studio's greatest TV franchises and library of both contemporary and classic movies," said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos. "Our members love TV shows, and making such pop-culture hits like 'Glee' and 'Sons of Anarchy' available to watch instantly reinforces our commitment to provide them a wider selection of programs."
