Hang on, Hulu ad-free still has ads?!

Hulu's new "No Commercials" option might not be as "ad-free" as you may have originally suspected. While the option - revealed by the company earlier this week - is suggested to be made for those users that'd been wishing for a video experience completely devoid of advertisements, the fine print doesn't exactly agree with the large print. Not every show has "obtained the rights to stream commercial free" at this time - therefor not every show will be commercial free - some will still have a few before-and-after ads in play.

“The Mindy Project” becomes a Hulu original series

Hulu has decided to make recently cancelled "The Mindy Project" one of its exclusives, it has been announced. Following its cancellation by Fox, the series has been picked up by Hulu which has ordered a fourth season of episodes -- 26 episodes to be exact, which is actually about two seasons' worth. Regardless, the show will continue where it has left off, only now as a streamable digital offering rather than a traditional cable show. It isn't clear when the season will launch.

AT&T and Hulu partner to bring subscribers streaming videos

AT&T and Hulu have announced a new (expanded) partnership between the two that will bring video streaming content from the latter to AT&T’s own subscribers — both on the web and on their mobile devices.

The pair announced the expanded partnership today.

Hulu scores ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ exclusive streaming rights

Hulu scores ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ exclusive streaming rights

Hulu is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with, and alongside the Seinfeld announcement is news that the company will be the exclusive future home of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead series, at least as far as online streaming in concerned. This is a somewhat surprising move, considering that AMC granted Netflix exclusive streaming rights to the first season of The Walking Dead back in January. Furthermore, AMC is doing far more than just granting Hulu FTWD streaming rights.

Hulu grabs CSI streaming exclusive (sorry, Netflix)

The on-demand content grab continues, with Hulu announcing it'll be the only place to go if you're a CSI: Crime Scene Investigation fan thanks to an exclusive licensing deal.

That includes CSI: Cyber, the newest addition to the franchise which is about to debut.

Hulu strikes deal with FX Productions for exclusive streaming

Hulu has announced a new "landmark" deal with FX Productions that will bring additional television content from FXX and FX to the subscription video streaming service.

Hulu has more ABC shows inbound

Hulu has more ABC shows inbound

Hulu might not be adding new shows and movies at the same clipped rate as Netflix, but the video streaming service certainly isn't slouching when it comes to providing new content. Earlier this month, Hulu revealed it will be adding several TV series from Discovery network stations on January 1, and last night it followed that up with an additional announcement: a new agreement with Disney-ABC that'll result in streamable episodes of several additional television shows, including Resurrection and Alias.

Nielsen tipped in plan to monitor subscription video viewership

Nielsen tipped in plan to monitor subscription video viewership

Nielsen plans to start monitoring video streaming services' viewership numbers, shedding light on figures that have long been hidden from the public. Such information comes from the Wall Street Journal, which reports that it has viewed client documents related to the plan. The plan won't include tracking viewership habits that take place on mobile devices (for now, at least), but will use Nielsen meters to analyze audio for determining what shows are being watched on other devices. The resulting numbers could, among other things, help studios negotiating with the services.

Hulu will soon have old Nickelodeon shows and more

Hulu will soon have old Nickelodeon shows and more

Hulu is a decent subscription to have if it offers a show you like to keep relatively up-to-date on, but isn't so great when it comes to watching old episodes of long gone shows. Netflix fills that void to some degree, but it is lacking in its own way, which makes Hulu's latest announcement a welcomed one: a new deal is in place with Viacom that will usher in thousands of additional episodes, including ones from older shows like The Ren & Stimpy Show and Nickelodeon's under-appreciated Invader Zim.
