The first season of "Glee" is coming to Netflix.

That's just one of the new shows coming to the popular streaming service as part of a new pact with Twentieth Century Fox. On Friday, the two companies announced that they have amended and expanded their digital distribution agreement.

Under the new multi-year agreement,  Netflix will be able to stream the first two seasons of “Sons of Anarchy” and older series such as “Ally McBeal” and “The Wonder Years."

News of the deal comes as Netflix has been engaged in fractious negotiations with cable companies such as Starz and Showtime, who privately fear they have cannibalized their business by giving the  subscription service too much access to their content. Their latest deals restricted Netflix streaming access to most recent episodes of their programming.
