Hulu and Viacom hammer out content partnership

Hulu became one of the largest video streaming sites online since it launched and has some of the best streaming content you can find on the web with shows from major networks that you can catch up on. Hulu has been reportedly considering a change from the free streaming site we all know to a paid IPTV provider, but so far the site is sticking to its mostly free roots.

Hulu and Viacom have announced that they have signed a new content agreement that will see some of the most popular shows around return to Hulu. Shows like The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report are part of the content deal. Other shows form Viacom networks like Comedy Central, MTV, BET, VH1, Spike TV, and TV Land are coming to Hulu Plus.

The agreement provides current full episodes of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and the Colbert Report on the free side of Hulu. Hulu Plus subscribers will get access to Jersey Shore, Tosh.0, Teen Mom 2, Manswers, Let’s Stay Together, and Hot in Cleveland 21 days after the shows air for the first time. The best stuff to me are the old shows coming to Hulu plus like The Chappelle Show, Reno 911, Beavis & Butthead, Real World, Punk’d, Baldwin Hill. Beavis & Butthead takes me right back to the 90’s.
