With a new digital content agreement between NBCUniversal and Netflix, "Saturday Night Live" episodes will no longer be available to users of Netflix’s streaming service a day after they air on television, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Company Town blog.

NBC now insists that Netflix is for content that’s at least one year old, according to terms of the new agreement, which will last for at least two years.

The deal makes available some shows that weren’t previously offered on Netflix, such as "Parenthood" and "The Event," plus some classic TV shows such as "Leave It to Beaver.” The agreement is non-exclusive, which will allow NBCU to license content to other online streaming services, the piece adds.
