Hulu, the major force in internet television for the United States market, today announced that they were bringing CBS content to the platform. Starting in 2013, Hulu Plus subscribers (who pay $8 per month) will be able to stream CBS content through Hulu. This means shows like Numb3rs and CSI, as well as a impressive back catalog of content that includes the original Star Trek and The Twilight Zone.
Previously, Hulu had featured content from Fox, NBC, and ABC. With CBS it completes its collection of major American broadcast networks. From the press release, it doesn’t appear as if any of the CBS content will be available without an account (read: free), but for Hulu Plus subscribers, your cord-cutting strategy just got a lot easier.
