I just logged in to my Netflix account and discovered that they have added Lost, Desperate Housewives, and a few other ABC shows to their streaming video collection. Here is the complete list taken from the today’s public release:
- Lost - seasons 1-5
- Desperate Housewives - seasons 4,5
- Grey’s Anatomy - season 5
- Legend of the Seeker - season 1,2
You obviously need a Netflix account to watch the shows on your computer or another Netflix enabled device but the streams are commercials free and you can watch as many as you want (no time limit) if you buy a plan for $8.99 / month. All of this is of course in addition to the DVD’s you rent from them.
By adding instant content to the website Netflix keeps pushing me closer towards shelling out a couple hundred bucks for a Netflix enabled DVD to our bedroom. We use a media PC to watch TV in our living room but every time I want to watch Netflix in the bedroom I have to use my laptop - not a very convenient setup especially if you fall asleep during the movie. ;-)
