After several months of increasingly bad news, Netflix finally had some small, but positive info to share yesterday.  The company announced that it had extended its current deal with ABC/Disney which will keep all current shows on the service, but will also add some that were previously unavailable.  Expected to continue are:

• Prior season episodes of ABC current hit series "Grey's Anatomy," "Desperate Housewives," and "Private Practice"
• All episodes of recent ABC favorites "Lost," "Brothers & Sisters," and "Ugly Betty"
• Prior season episodes of critically-acclaimed "Army Wives" from ABC Studios
• Popular series from ABC Family including "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," "Melissa & Joey," and "Make It or Break It"
• A wide range of content from Disney Channel including series "Phineas and Ferb," " Good Luck Charlie," "The Suite Life on Deck," and "Hannah Montana"

Added to the service are:

• ABC Family's smash hit series "Switched at Birth"
• Prior season episodes of Disney Channel's animated series "Kick Buttowski"
• All episodes of the ABC thriller "Alias"

So kudos to Netflix for not losing the ABC/Disney content they currently have and adding a couple of series.  Hopefully we will begin to see more announcements in the near future, and not just for a handful of TV series.
