Netflix is extending its previous existing licensing agreement with Disney-ABC Television Group while Amazon acquires a new deal
Both Netflix and Amazon have announced new agreements with Disney-ABC Television Group today.
Netflix has had a bit of a
throughout 2011 with the decision to
limit video streams
, add a DVD spinoff company called Qwikster, then suddenly
before it even launched. Netflix's
loss of its Starz distribution deal
come February was also a hard hit that came this past September, which will eliminate Disney and Sony-related programming.
But now, Netflix has struck a deal with Disney-ABC Television Group, extending their previous existing licensing agreement. This allows Netflix to stream content from the Disney Channel, ABC Studios and ABC Family.

Some of the new Netflix content includes ABC Family's "Switched at Birth," prior season episodes of Disney Channel's "Kick Buttowski," and ABC's "Alias."
Netflix isn't the only subscription service landing deals with Disney-ABC. Amazon has also announced an agreement with Disney-ABC Television Group, although Amazon's deal isn't an extension of an existing licensing agreement, but rather a new deal that will allow Amazon Prime subscribers access to a variety of content from Disney Channel, ABC Studios, Marvel, and ABC Family.
"We are excited to add some of the very best content available from Disney-ABC to Prime instant video," said Brad Beale, director of video content acquisition for Amazon. "This includes every episode of past seasons from the ABC hits 'Lost' and 'Grey's Anatomy,' fan favorites like 'Felicity' and 'Greek,' the popular Disney Channel show 'Phineas & Ferb' and great animated series from Marvel. We're working hard to add even more selection for
customers and Prime members leading up to the holidays, and expect to have nearly 13,000 titles available in Prime instant video by early next year."
