Netflix Extends Disney ABC Contract

Netflix renews Disney-ABC contract Hot on the heels of this morning's news that Amazon Prime has made a deal with Disney-ABC TV, Netflix has announced that they have extended their license agreement with ABC Television Group, enabling them to continue streaming previously run seasons of popular ABC, ABC Family, and Disney Channel programming.

With this extension comes a slew of new, previously unavailable series from the Disney-ABC library, including Kick Buttowski: Suburban Daredevil, Alias, and Switched at Birth.

Netflix will also continue to carry the already available Disney-ABC series Lost, Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives, along with a number of new series that have aired on The Disney and Family Channels.

This new contract further places Netflix in direct competition with Amazon Prime, now that both parties are making this Disney-ABC content available to customers.

    @shuabert It just the Rambaldi stuff that kind of derailed it for me. The first 2 seasons were fantastic tho and like i said the final seasons were not terrible..they were just more along the lines of what you would expect from J.J. Abrams. placing the series prominantly in the sci fi genre.

      @skywise But your opinion seems to be the consensus, that it started to go off the rails a bit towards the end after they sort of wrote themselves into a corner. I'm amazed after all these years that I still haven't stumbled across major spoilers for the series.

        @skywise Yeah, I've only seen the first two seasons, and I've always wanted to go back and watch the whole thing. It's one of a long list of shows I want to watch.

            None of those shows are available on Netflix Canada, but I'd love to see Alias on there.
