'Glee,' 'Sons of Anarchy' in new Netflix, Fox deal

Netflix has inked a deal with Twentieth Century Fox that will see "Glee" and "Sons of Anarchy" come to its streaming service, along with other content.

Twentieth Century Fox and Netflix have expanded their digital distribution deal, the companies said today.

Under the new agreement, Netflix can now stream two of Fox's top television shows--"Glee" and "Sons of Anarchy." The first season of "Glee" and the first two seasons of "Sons of Anarchy" were made available on Netflix's streaming service today. Going forward, subsequent seasons will be "added annually," the companies said.

The companies also plan to bring several more series in the Fox library to Netflix, including "Ally McBeal" and "The Wonder Years." The former is currently available for streaming on Netflix, but "The Wonder Years" is not available just yet.

It has been a big week for Netflix. The company signed a deal with Paramount Pictures earlier this week that provides it with "exclusive subscription television rights to all first-run films" in Canada. That agreement paves the way for Netflix to stream Paramount content before HBO, Showtime, and other subscription providers can do so.

In addition, Netflix's five-year deal with Paramount brought "Iron Man 2," among more than 350 other films to the service in Canada.

Back in the States, Netflix's pact with Fox will be a boon for people who were already viewing Fox's television content. Many of its shows, including "Lie to Me," "24," and "Arrested Development," were already available on the streaming service.
