Back in January, we learned that 14 Viacom networks would be coming to Hulu + Live TV. Today, Hulu announced via their Twitter account that nine new networks are available on the streaming service now.

  • Hulu’s tweet specifically listed three networks as available now:
    • Nickelodeon
    • MTV
    • BET
  • They also listed several shows that Hulu + Live TV subscribers will be able to watch now:
    • SpongeBob SquarePants

    • RuPaul’s Drag Race
    • South Park
    • Younger

  • Back in January, ViacomCBS announced a new multi-year deal that would see 14 popular cable networks come to Hulu that will be available for Hulu + Live TV subscribers.
  • The networks included in the deal are:
    • BET
    • Comedy Central
    • MTV
    • Nickelodeon
    • Paramount Network
    • VH1
    • CMT
    • Nick Jr.
    • TV Land

  • The popular networks, some dating back decades to cable television’s early days, have been missing from live streaming services, including Hulu’s live TV package that debuted in 2017.
  • ViacomCBS inked a similar deal last year with Google’s YouTube TV, one of several since their first year as a combined company that also included renewals with Comcast, Dish Network, and Verizon.
  • Late last year, Hulu + Live TV increased their rates by 18% with packages starting at 64.99 per month. The addition of the 14 Viacom networks will be included in this new rate, as well as other CBS stations that were previously included, including CBS Sports Network, Pop TV, Smithsonian Channel, and The CW.
  • Interestingly, the Disney-owned Hulu is in direct competition to CBS’s own streaming service, Paramount Plus.
