The first season of the Emmy-award winning program will be available on Netflix’s “Watch Instantly” feature, in addition to the first two seasons of “Son of Anarchy,” with additional seasons being added annually.

The amended and expanded non-exclusive digital distribution agreement has provided the addition of older shows, including “Ally McBeal” and “The Wonder Years,” as well. After its premium pay television license periods conclude, Fox will also make a number of library movies available to Netflix.

“Our expanded non-exclusive streaming agreement 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 president of new media and digital distribution for Fox Filmed Entertainment, Peter Levinsohn. “We look forward to working with Netflix and our other partners to further enhance the choices available to audiences.”

“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 Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer. “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."

Before the new agreement, Fox made several seasons of TV shows available instantly from Netflix, including “Lie to Me,” “24,” “Prison Break,” “Arrested Development,” “Buffy and Vampire Slayer,” and “X-Files.”
