Amazon has struck a deal with Disney's Direct-to Consumer and International department to get streaming rights to a list of Disney shows including Lost, Desperate Housewives and many more for their ad-supported streaming service IMDb TV, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

  • The deal brings more than 20 Disney shows to IMDb TV, which will be the exclusive ad-supported gome of Lost and Malcolm in the Middle.
  • Those interested in streaming these shows will be able to do so for free though they will also unfortunately have to do so with ads.

  • All of the shows listed above (with the exception of My So-Called Life) will continue to stream ad-free on Hulu as well.
