Programming under the deal includes NBC hits like SNL, The Office, 30 Rock, Parenthood, Law and Order: SVU and The Event, all available on a one-season-delay basis.

Shows available from NBCU cable nets (including Bravo, Oxygen, Syfy and USA) include prior season episodes of Warehouse 13, Psych, Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane; classics such as Leave it to Beaver, Adam 12 and Crossing Jordan; along with Universal Pictures movies like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Motorcycle Diaries.
