CBS Corp. licenses library fare to Hulu Plus

In-season broadcast series not part of deal

CBS Corp. and Hulu struck a deal to put library content on the subscription arm of the streaming service, the companies announced Monday.

The pact covers 2,600 episodes of series including “Medium,” “Numb3rs” and “CSI: Miami,” which will join Hulu Plus in January, as will classics such as “Star Trek,” “I Love Lucy” and “The Twilight Zone.”

While CBS Corp. has been about as aggressive as any media company out there when it comes to licensing content to the subscription VOD market, the deal may be notable only in that CBS is the only broadcaster that is either not a partial owner in Hulu nor licenses current series to the service. However, this deal does not cover such content.

The closest CBS Corp. will inch to in-season programming is clips of “Entertainment Tonight,” will be available day of broadcast on both Hulu and Hulu Plus.
