Hulu Plus signs deal with CBS (Only old and cancelled shows)


LOS ANGELES, Nov. 5, 2012 – CBS Corporation (NYSE: CBS.A and CBS) and Hulu announced today a non-exclusive, multi-year licensing agreement to stream programs from CBS’s rich television library on the Hulu Plus subscription service. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The CBS content will begin to appear on Hulu Plus in January 2013, and over the following months, Hulu Plus subscribers will have access to more than 2,600 episodes from library series such as “Medium,” “Numb3rs” and “CSI: Miami,” as well as classics such as “Star Trek,” “I Love Lucy” and “The Twilight Zone.” Clips from ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT will also be available the day of broadcast on Hulu and Hulu Plus. A selection of CBS library shows will also rotate through the free Hulu.com service, and additional titles will be announced.

For all intents and purposes this is the exact same deal they signed with Netflix a year or so ago. It's basically their old back catalogue library of old and cancelled shows that are produced by CBS or Paramount.

So, you aren't getting CSI, NCIS, The Good Wife or H50 etc.

So let's see, would you rather watch the exact same material on Netflix with no commercials or watch it on Hulu Plus with commercials.

Netflix, because watching :30 - 1:30 of forced commercials every 10 minutes for a streaming service I'm paying for is the fucking worst.
