The 2,600 new episodes going to the streaming service in the non-exclusive arrangement will include Undercover Boss, United States Of Tara, Everybody Loves Raymond, and Ghost Whisperer, the companies just announced. Also in the package are hits from the CBS vaults including Taxi, The Brady Bunch, Laverne & Shirley, Melrose Place, and 7th Heaven. CBS and Hulu didn’t disclose terms for the multi-year licensing agreement, an expansion of their 2012 deal, which brings Hulu’s collection of CBS shows to more than 5,300 episodes. Shows will hit the subscription-based Hulu Plus “in the coming weeks,” the companies say, and some will appear on the free Hulu.com. “CBS programming on Hulu Plus has performed exceptionally well,” says the network’s Chief Corporate Content Licensing Officer Scott Koondel. Last week the companies said that the streaming service would have exclusive subscription video on demand rights for previous seasons of the crime drama Elementary as well as a deal for previous seasons of Blue Bloods.
