Hulu and Viacom have a renewed and expanded their content partnership that grants Hulu the exclusive subscription video on-demand rights to selected top-rated series from Nickelodeon, Comedy Central and MTV, the companies announced Tuesday.

The multi-year agreement makes Hulu the exclusive SVOD home to past and future seasons of popular titles from Comedy Central including the Emmy Award-winning comedy series “Inside Amy Schumer,” “Broad City,” “Drunk History” and “Key & Peele.”

The deal also continues their existing relationship under which full episodes of late night shows including “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” are available to stream on Hulu the day after airing on broadcast.

The deal also expands Hulu’s offering of exclusive kids programming from Nickelodeon. Full past seasons of Nickelodeon programming that have never been available on Hulu and are now exclusive to the service include “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “Rabbids Invasion,” “Sanjay and Craig,” and “The Thundermans.”

In addition, all episodes of nostalgic kids series “Doug” and “Rugrats,” will become available to stream for the first time ever on Hulu. These join Nickelodeon library series including “The Wild Thornberrys,” “Hey Arnold!,” and “The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius.”

“Viacom has been an important partner of ours since we struck our first deal with them over five years ago and our relationship has only grown since then,” said Mike Hopkins, CEO of Hulu. “Today, we are not only extending our deal, but we are adding more premium content than ever from their popular family of networks.”

“We are thrilled to be expanding our successful relationship with Hulu as they continue to build an even bigger and better service for subscribers and our passionate viewers,” Viacom president and CEO Philippe Dauman said. “Hulu has been a great partner for Viacom for many years.”
