Announced earlier today, AMC Networks and Hulu have reached a deal to stream all new (That’s a key word; we’ll come back to that later) scripted shows from all the networks under their banner, including AMC, IFC, BCC America, SundanceTV, and WE tv. This was a part of several announcements Hulu made today at the Hulu Upfront Presentation in New York City. Among the new shows coming to Hulu via this deal is the upcoming spin-off series, Fear the Walking Dead.
Via a post on the Hulu Blog, the company said the following:
“Through the deal, Hulu will – over time – become the SVOD home to a diverse and comprehensive collection of AMC Networks Inc.-produced content. Hulu will also become the streaming home for a significant number of films from the IFC Films collection. Full seasons of future series produced by AMC Networks will be available to stream exclusively on Hulu following their network season runs.”
Y’all caught the caveat, right? I told you that “new” was the key word in this announcement; this news does not apply to any show already on AMC. So shows like the original The Walking Dead, Mad Man, Better Call Saul, and Breaking Bad aren’t a part of it – those will stay on Netflix.
Still, this is fantastic news for cord-cutters like Yours Truly. The more shows that are easier to watch from my PlayStation 4, the happier I’ll be! What are your thoughts on this news? Let us know in the comments!
Oh, and also announced was that Seinfeld is coming to Hulu. If that’s your thing. 😉
