Hulu today announced a sizable content deal with 20th Century Fox Television Distribution that will allow Hulu to add nearly 3,000 more episodes of popular TV shows, including dramas and comedies, to Hulu’s streaming service.
The deal will give Hulu the streaming rights to several well-known titles, such as “How I Met Your Mother,” “Burn Notice,” “Bones,” and “Glee,” and will also bring to Hulu the full back catalog of older shows, like “MAS*H” and “NYPD Blue,” as well.
21st Century Fox owns roughly a third of Hulu, but Hulu still has to negotiate for streaming rights to 20th Century Fox content.
So far, however, it’s done well on that front.
The new agreement comes shortly after Hulu announced another deal with 20th Century Fox earlier this month, which allows the service to expand its offering of animated series, including the full libraries for shows like “Bob’s Burgers,” “American Dad!,” and “Futurama,” among others.
And another recent deal between Hulu and 20th Century Fox made the service the exclusive subscription video on-demand home to the top drama “This Is Us,” plus other notable shows like “Fresh Off the Boat,” “The Last Man on Earth,” “Homeland,” and more.
