CBS Corporation and Hulu have reached an agreement to expand their partnership with a deal that will give Hulu Plus subscribers access to “Ghost Whisperer,” “United States of Tara” and “Everybody Loves Raymond.”
The expansion of the companies’ multi-year, non-exclusive deal will also bring “Undercover Boss,” “Taxi,” “The Brady Bunch,” “Laverne & Shirley,” “Melrose Place” and “7th Heaven” to Hulu Plus subscribers.
In all, Hulu Plus subscribers will have access to more than 5,300 episodes from the CBS library. Hulu Plus and CBS’ previous licensing deal had already included series such as “The Good Wife,” “CSI: Miami,” “The Amazing Race,” “I Love Lucy,” “Star Trek,” and “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.”
The new offerings will become available to subscribers in the coming weeks.
“CBS programming on Hulu Plus has performed exceptionally well,” CBS Corporation chief content licensing officer Scott Koondel said of the expanded deal. “We’re thrilled to expand our relationship with them, providing more terrific CBS content to their growing base of subscribers.”
Added Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins, “With the newly expanded CBS content library, Hulu Plus subscribers will be treated to some of the most significant shows ever seen on television. From ‘Happy Days’ to ‘Cheers’ and ‘Everybody Loves Raymond,’ these hit shows defined their eras, and we’re thrilled to offer full seasons to be enjoyed by new and loyal audiences anytime, anywhere.”
