Our Take:

Hulu and Viacom announced a new, expanded OTT deal on Tuesday that includes the series “Inside Amy Schumer,” “Broad City,” “Faking It,” “Drunk City,” “Finding Carter” and several Nickelodeon shows. Hulu is getting these SVOD rights on an exclusive basis. It’s one more deal in a series for Hulu, which has added content from EPIX, Turner and AMCN in recent months. It also recently launched an ad-free verion for $11.99 a month, after repeated customer requests for such a version.
