Hulu to Add All Episodes of ‘How I Met Your Mother,’ ‘Glee,’ ‘Bones,’ ‘M*A*S*H’ and More in Mammoth 20th Century Fox TV Deal

Hulu and 20th Century Fox Television Distribution announced a massive new agreement that will add nearly 3,000 episodes from 26 recent and older comedy and drama series to the streaming service.

Under the expanded deal, Hulu obtains streaming rights to every episode of shows including “How I Met Your Mother,” “Burn Notice,” “Bones” and “Glee,” as well as all 11 seasons of “M*A*S*H” and the full “NYPD Blue” library.

Hulu has exclusive subscription VOD rights to the full libraries of “M*A*S*H” and “NYPD Blue,” both which will launch on the service later this summer, as well as “The Practice,” “St. Elsewhere” and “Reba” (which are now streaming).

Through the agreement, Hulu’s offering will expand over the coming weeks with all episodes of the following series from 20th Century Fox:

Comedies: “How I Met Your Mother,” “Raising Hope,” “The Bernie Mac Show,” “Better Off Ted,” “Reba,” “Life in Pieces”

Dramas: “NYPD Blue,” “Bones,” “Glee,” “Burn Notice,” “White Collar,” “The Practice”

Classic Series: “M*A*S*H,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “St. Elsewhere,” “Hill Street Blues,” “The Bob Newhart Show”

Fan Favorites: “Don’t Trust the B—in Apartment 23,” “The Grinder,” “Blue Collar,” “Saving Grace,” “Lie To Me,” “Graceland”

Cult Hits: “Dollhouse,” “Wilfred,” “The Glades”

The deal comes on the heels of Hulu’s deal last week with 20th Century Fox TV for all episodes of four animated comedies from the studio: Emmy-winning comedy “Bob’s Burgers” along with “American Dad,” “Futurama,” and “The Cleveland Show.”

While 21st Century Fox holds a 33% ownership stake in Hulu, the companies’ execs say 20th Century Fox does not give any preferential treatment to Hulu over Netflix or other streaming services in cutting licensing deals.
