Netflix is on a content and services dealmaking frenzy. After embedding its service in LG, XBox, Roku and others, it has now done deals with *CBS* and *Disney* for making their TV shows available on the online version of its service. This will add about 500 older TV episodes from the *Disney* Channel and 350 episodes from *CBS*….others like NBC are already on Netflix (NSDQ: NFLX). The streaming service on Netflix is available for free for its DVD rental subscribers, and will be commercial free. Netflix has about 12K video available for streaming, compared to bout 100K DVDs in its service, but Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, told WSJ that the company expects to have dozens of major new TV shows available over the next couple of months.
