MIPCOM 2012 – Cannes. Hulu and Viacom have announced an expansion of their content partnership that will bring Nickelodeon programming to the Hulu Plus service.
Programmes will be available 21 days after the episodes air on television. Subscribers can catch up on these and many other current series at a new Nickelodeon destination on Hulu Plus, which will feature tune-in information and promotional elements to drive viewership of Nickelodeon’s on-air lineup.
The expanded agreement will also bring content from Viacom’s bilingual network, Tr3s, and broaden the Hulu Latino selection of youth-focused content on Hulu Plus.
Under the agreement, Hulu and Viacom will also continue to make current and full episodes and clips of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report available on the free ad-supported Hulu.com service and Hulu Plus.
Viacom continues to make content available from its other networks, BET, Comedy Central, MTV, Spike, TV Land and VH1.
Hulu has also announced that it is co-producing The Wrong Mans in partnership with BBC Worldwide Americas. This is Hulu’s second co-production with BBC. Hulu came on board at the script stage and is working closely with actor and writer James Corden, co-writer/actor Mathew Baynton and director/producer Jim Field Smith on the creative vision for this new show.
The Wrong Mans will be on Hulu, Hulu Plus and BBC in the UK in 2013.
Hulu has also said its Hulu Plus service has more than two million subscribers for the first time.
