Netflix adds three ABC series to instant offerings

ABC is pushing three of its returning young series very hard, hoping that they can become part of America's regular viewings.

Once Upon a Time, Revenge and Scandal have been made available for instant streaming via Netflix, just as each prepares to return for a second season. The turn-around is very rapid, as each ended its first season three months ago.


“We are thrilled that Netflix will become the exclusive subscription destination for the first seasons of these successful ABC shows. We know our members like to immerse themselves in their favorite shows and Scandal, Revenge and Once Upon a Time are the kind of smart, serialized dramas that Netflix members love,” said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer of Netflix.

Networks are putting an increased emphasis on streaming sites such as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime. The pilot episodes of The Mindy Project, and Ben and Kate are available on Hulu now, even though they haven't debuted on Fox yet.

Other ABC dramas on Netflix include Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, Desperate Housewives and Lost.

Does this news make you more likely to give them a try? Revenge seems like trashy fun, but Once Upon a Time seems aimed at younger audiences. And Scandal doesn't appeal to me at all.

I really wish Netflix would get Castle. I love that show. I'm happy they have Scandle though, it's an awesome show!

Yeah they really need to add Castle. I have Hulu and Netflix but Hulu only has the latest season of Castle. I'm hoping if Netflix picks it up, it will have every season.
