It also will bring all episodes of “Lost,” “Scrubs,” “Reaper” and “Ugly Betty” to Netflix’s Watch Instantly service.

Other highlights of the deal include additional from the Disney Channel, including “Phineas and Ferb” and “Good Luck Charlie” – and expanded offerings of “The Suite Life on Deck” and “Wizards of Waverly Place”.  The deal will also include movies such as the “High School Musical” and “Camp Rock” franchises.

From ABC Family – whose content was previously unavailable via Netflix streaming – viewers will be able to watch “Greek,” “Make It or Break It,” “The Secret Life of the American Teenager” and “Melissa & Joey.”
