Hulu has reached a distribution agreement with NBCUniversal that will bring NBC and Telemundo Owned Television Stations' portfolio of leading cable networks to Hulu's upcoming new live TV streaming service.

The deal will provide live and on-demand streaming access to networks including NBC, Telemundo, USA, Syfy, Bravo, E!, MSNBC, CNBC, NBCSN and more, bringing the total number of channels in Hulu’s live TV service to more than 50. The agreement also includes a framework for licensing the NBC and Telemundo broadcast affiliates for carriage on Hulu’s new service.

“NBC Universal is home to many of today’s leading sports, news, entertainment and lifestyle networks – brands that not only draw large audiences but also drive pop culture,” said Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins. “With this agreement in place, Hulu will soon provide an affordable, complete live TV package that includes all four major broadcast networks, the top-rated cable news channels, a massive sports offering and our deep existing premium streaming library for under $40.”
“We’re pleased to partner with Hulu to make NBCUniversal’s leading portfolio of entertainment, news and sports networks available on this new service,” stated Matt Bond, Chairman NBCUniversal Content Distribution. “Growing our audiences is an important priority and this partnership will help bring our networks to new customers.”

The deal follows Hulu’s recently announced agreement with A+E Networks, as well as its agreements with 21st Century Fox, The Walt Disney Company, Turner Networks and CBS.

Hulu says its new service launches this spring for under $40/month.

It's still expensive and you still can't choose the channels you want. They come pre packaged and pre bundled. That's the kind of service for which I'd pay. Choose 10 or 20 or 30 or more channels but choose only the ones you like.
