LOS ANGELES – CBS Corp. and Hulu announced a non-exclusive, multi-year
licensing agreement to stream programs from CBS’s television library on the
Hulu Plus subscription service. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The CBS content will
begin to appear on Hulu Plus starting in January 2013, and over the following
months, Hulu Plus subscribers will have access to more than 2,600 episodes from
library series such as “Medium,” “Numb3rs” and “CSI: Miami,” as well as
classics such as “Star Trek,” “I Love Lucy” and “The Twilight Zone.”
Clips from “Entertainment Tonight” will also be available the day of broadcast
on Hulu and Hulu Plus. A selection of CBS library shows will also rotate
through the free Hulu.com service,
and additional titles will be announced.
CBS and Hulu also have previously announced licensing agreements for
CBS-produced programming that airs on The CW and for CBS content on Hulu’s
subscription service in Japan.
