The video rental and streaming website Netflix has added several television anime series from the North American anime/manga distributor Viz Media to its Instant Watch streaming library. ANN has confirmed that these are Viz's first streaming titles to appear on Netflix, although the company's titles have been available for disc rental on the site for some time.

The complete series of Hikaru no Go, a television anime adaptation of Yumi Hotta and Takeshi Obata's manga of the same name, is also available streaming on the site, as is the entirety of the television anime adaptation of Chika Umino's manga Honey and Clover.
Additionally, the following series are now partially available:
- Bleach episodes 1 through 109
- Naruto seasons 1 & 2 (episodes 1 through 104)
