Hulu announced on their website today that they will be launching 3,000 new television episodes on their streaming service due to a new agreement with 20th Century Fox Television Distribution.
These episodes will be from shows that are currently popular on cable television as well as dramas and comedies. Hulu has received streaming rights to shows such as “Bones,” “Burn Notice,” and “Glee.” Hulu will also be streaming older television series as well, such as “MAS*H” and “NYPD Blue.”
The list also includes episodes from shows that have completed and/or been canceled, such as:
“How I Met Your Mother,” “Raising Hope,” “The Bernie Mac Show,” “Better Off Ted,” “Reba,” “Life in Pieces,” “White Collar,” “The Practice,” “Don’t Trust the B—in Apartment 23,” “The Grinder,” “Blue Collar,” “Saving Grace,” “Lie To Me,” “Graceland,” “Dollhouse,” “Wilfred,” “The Glades,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “St. Elsewhere,” “Hill Street Blues,” and “The Bob Newhart Show.”
Even though 20th Century Fox Television Distribution owns one third of Hulu, the streaming service still needs to vye for the right to stream 20th Century’s content. Thankfully, they have been able to come to multiple agreements since their collaboration.
Previously, Hulu announced that they received permission from 20th Century Fox to stream episodes of “Bob’s Burgers,” “Futurama,” “American Dad,” and more.
Another deal arrived when 20th Century Fox and Hulu arranged for the streaming of television shows such as “This Is Us,” “Last Man on Earth,” “Fresh Off the Boat,” and “Homeland.”
Hulu has stated that these new television series episodes will be available to be streamed to subscribers’ in-home devices in the coming weeks, with no definitive release date set for any of the shows. TechCrunch states that it’s predicted that some of the episodes will be released by the end of the summer, and the full list of content should be accessible by the end of the year.
Hulu notes that they will be announcing the inclusion of even more television series episodes in the coming weeks.
