Ted-Sarandos-Netflix Under terms of the agreement, Netflix will not be allowed to stream current shows earlier than 15 days after the initial broadcast.

“TV content streamed from Netflix has proven to be immensely popular with our members," said Ted Sarandos, the company’s chief content officer.  

"Adding to our existing Disney-ABC lineup with great network and cable shows, and opening up ABC Family for the first time, are important steps in creating a wide and diverse selection of content Netflix members of all ages can watch."

Netflix members will be able to stream:

*Prior season episodes of current ABC series "Grey’s Anatomy,"  "Desperate Housewives" and, for the first time on Netflix, "Brothers & Sisters."

*Every episode of  ABC’s  "Lost" and "Ugly Betty.”

*Each season of several series from ABC Studios, including "Scrubs" and "Reaper," which are both new additions to Netflix.
