Hulu signs CBS deal to bring 2,600 new episodes to its paid-for Hulu Plus streaming service

Hulu has inked a new deal with CBS to bring more of the U.S. broadcaster’s programming to Hulu Plus, its subscription-based TV and movie streaming service.

The deal adds 2,600 new episodes to Hulu’s library, covering classic TV shows such as The Brady Brunch, Melrose Place, and Taxi, as well as more recent programming such as Everybody Loves Raymond, Undercover Boss, United States of Tara and Ghost Whisperer.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

The fresh content nearly doubles the 2,700 CBS episodes that were added to Hulu’s catalog in November 2012, giving new and existing Hulu Plus subscribers access to over 5,300 instalments in total. The previous deal brought across arguably more high-profile titles including Star Trek, The Good Wife, CSI: Miami, Numb3rs and Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

Today’s announcement is a non-exclusive, multi-year agreement and follows a separate deal last week that gives Hulu exclusive subscription video-on-demand rights for the Sherlock Holmes-based drama ‘Elementary’.
