Hulu has signed an agreement with The CW for its recently launched live TV streaming service, meaning that it now has all five of the major U.S. broadcast networks on board.
In the coming months, subscribers of the Hulu with Live TV (beta) plan will be able to enjoy live broadcasts of their favorite prime-time CW series, as well as local station programming. Subscribers to Hulu’s live service will have live access to The CW’s programming, including the new fall series Valor and Dynasty; the hit show Riverdale and the long-running fan favorite Supernatural; popular DC titles Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Arrow and The Flash; and the network’s critically acclaimed Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. VOD episodes of The CW’s current season series will be available to Hulu with Live TV subscribers soon.
“The CW has long attracted younger audiences to live TV, so we are very happy to offer the network through Hulu’s new live service,” said Tim Connolly, Hulu’s senior VP of strategic partnerships and distribution.
“The CW is excited to be a part of Hulu’s groundbreaking new live TV service,” said Chris Brooks, the executive VP of network distribution at The CW. “This new partnership furthers our goal of expanding our audience across digital platforms.”
