Hulu has grabbed streaming rights to over 2,000 CBS shows from the 70′s and 80′s in a deal that brings a number of classic shows from the old days, to add to the bang up to date content they have already secured.
The shows which will be added to the subscription VOD service Hulu Plus include real old TV series such as Taxi, Cheers, Happy Days, The Brady Bunch, Laverne and Shirley, and The Odd Couple.
Also included are a few more modern shows that include Undercover Boss, Melrose Place, Everybody Loves Raymond, Touched by an Angel, 7th Heaven, and United States of Tara.
When added to the more recent CBS shows added such as Under The Dome, and new deals just struck for detective show Elementary, and police drama Blue Bloods, then the total shows in the deal equal around 40 shows spread over 5,300 episodes. The deals are not exclusive though, so you may see them popping up on Amazon or Netflix along with other streaming services.
CBS generally just air shows on the CBS.com website as they have no stake in Hulu, but are taking advantage of the insatiable need for content that streaming services have.
The Hulu Plus streaming subscription service costs $7.99 per month and offers unlimited streaming of full seasons on connected hardware that includes PC’s, tablets, smartphones, consoles and streaming boxes like Roku and Apple TV.
