If subscribers have to pay more for Netflix, then they'll want more content to make it worth it. Netflix is getting started to deliver more with new contracts signed with CBS and AMC.

First up, Netflix has secured a two-year deal with CBS Corporation that is quite similar to previous agreements in which CBS TV programming will be available for streaming in the United States.

And although Netflix has had some issues with Showtime, also owned by CBS, select shows will be posted to the Watch Instantly library, including The United States of Tara and Nurse Jackie. Even better, hits such as Californication and Dexter will be available for streaming in Canada as well as Latin America when the latter market opens up.

As for AMC, many Mad Men fanatics probably already knew this was coming and are thankful for a gift considering the next season has been put off until 2012. Netflix confirmed on its official blog on Wednesday that all of the first four seasons of the AMC hit series are ready for streaming immediately.

However, there's still no update about the rumored agreement between Netflix and Dreamworks Animation.
