Good news for those who choose their streaming service over their DVD delivery service when Netflix hikes up the prices in September (and for the fancy people who choose both): The company will continue to host NBCUniversal TV and film content after renewing an agreement, the companies announced today.

Under the multi-year deal, Netflix will continue to have prior seasons of shows like The Office, 30 Rock, and Parenthood available for streaming (on a one-season delay), as well as NBCU cable programs like Psych and Warehouse 13.
