ViacomCBS announced today a new agreement with Hulu today that will bring more content from ViacomCBS’ portfolio of brands to Hulu with Live TV.
The multi-year deal will allow Hulu to continue carrying its current CBS channels including CBS Sports, Pop TV, Smithsonian Channel, and CW, and current Viacom channels including premium subscriptions for Showtime. Hulu with Live will also add 14 new channels including BET, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount Network, VH1, CMT, Nick Jr., TV Land, BET Her, MTV2, NickToons, TeenNick and MTV Classic.
“We are excited to have reached an expanded agreement with Hulu that underscores the value of our powerful portfolio of brands to next-generation TV platforms and viewers,” said Ray Hopkins, President, U.S. Networks Distribution, ViacomCBS. “Hulu continues to be a great partner, and this agreement ensures that Hulu + Live TV subscribers are now able to enjoy the full breadth of our leading content across news, sports and entertainment for the first time.”
The addition of the new channels comes after Hulu with Live’s recent price hike which raised the monthly subscription cost from $54.99 to $64.99.
