Netflix was for most of its life a mail order DVD business. Netflix put such a hurt on Blockbuster than the Blockbuster chain has now been forced to file for bankruptcy. As Netflix evolves the company is now streaming content directly to consumers with a large and ever growing catalog of movies and TV shows available to stream.

Netflix and NBC announced a new deal that will see Netflix get access to some of the best shows that NBC Universal offers. The new deal will bring episodes from every season of "Saturday Night Live" to the streaming service as well as day after broadcasts of new episodes. Subscribers will also get every episode from last season of shows like "30 Rock," "The Office" and "Law & Order: SVU."

 

Shows from the NBC owned USA and SyFy networks are included in the deal as well. Fans of SyFy's "Battlestar Galactica" will be able to stream over 75 episodes from the series along with episodes of "Eureka" and other shows. Fans of comedy will be able to watch "Monk" and "Psych" from USA as well. The new agreement will go into effect next week.
