Netflix New Deal With NBC

Netflix announced an expanded license agreement with NBC Universal that expands the conglomerate's presence on Netflix Instant to include other NBC U programming from USA Network and Syfy. More than 75 episodes of Syfy's "Battlestar Galactica," as well as "Destination Truth" and "Eureka" will now be available on the service, as well as the USA series "Psych," "In Plain Sight" and "Monk." This also renews the deal to distribute past seasons of "30 Rock," "The Office" and "Saturday Night Live."

New SNL episodes will be available on Netflix the day after broadcast for the 2010, 2011 and 2012 seasons. With the exception of SNL, this doesn't necessarily conflict with NBC's presence on Hulu.
