Hulu, BBC Worldwide North America Sign Major Content Partnership
BBC Worldwide North America and Hulu announced this morning a multi-year deal that will allow the streaming television provider the rights to over 20 top U.K. programs, several of which will be available today to all Hulu Plus subscribers. There will also be a select number of BBC Worldwide library programs available through the free Hulu.com service on a rotating basis, though these titles have not yet been announced.
Among the titles now available on Hulu Plus are Doctor Who, its spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures, Torchwood, and documentary programs Blue Planet and Richard Hammond’s Crash Course, among others. More TV shows will become available in the fall, including Top Gear, Sherlock, Fawlty Towers, Blackadder, David Attenborough’s Life in the series and more.
Hulu and BBC Worldwide have worked together to provide content since 2010, and have even co-produced the fourth season of The Thick of It in 2011.
