Hulu keeps cutting the deals. Suddenlink and Hulu have reached an agreement to stream the OTT service through the MSO’s set-tops, reports Variety. Suddenlink subs will get access to Hulu later this year through TiVo boxes, and there is already a similar deal with Netflix in place. Hulu also has deals with Cablevision, Armstrong, Atlantic Broadband, Mediacom, Midcontinent and WOW!, and recently it announced additional content deals, with Turner and AMCN, for example.
Midsize cable operator Suddenlink Communications won’t carry Viacom’s networks – but it has just reached a deal with Hulu to offer subscribers access to the Internet TV service’s premium VOD service. Suddenlink, which has about 1.1 million TV subscribers, will work with Hulu to provide customers who have TiVo set-top boxes access to Hulu’s SVOD service some time later this year.
