Netflix Adds Fox's "Glee"

Netflix, which may lose access to shows from Showtime this summer, is adding some from News Corp.’s Fox studio. As in other recent deals the video service has signed, the new pact gives Netflix subscribers access to shows they haven’t had in the past–in this case, the big new titles are “Glee” and “Sons Of Anarchy”–but only older episodes: None of the shows will be available “in season.” The deal is an expansion of an existing agreement, and is non-exclusive. News Corp. also owns this Web site.
