BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.—Netflix Inc. customers can be filled with "Glee" now that an expanded distribution deal with Fox will allow the company to offer instant Internet streaming of the popular television program.

The new deal also adds cult favorite "Sons of Anarchy" and other popular TV shows and movies from Twentieth Century Fox to Netflix's Web streaming lineup. Netflix already streams a number of hit Fox TV shows both current and off-air, including "Lie to Me," "24," "Prison Break," "Arrested Development," "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" and "X-Files."

Netflix has been negotiating with all the big media companies for the rights to distribute programming online as it expands beyond its roots as a DVD-by-mail company and becomes a major player in Internet video.
