Community, WGN dramas to stream on Hulu
Greendale’s moving to Hulu.
The streaming service announced Monday a new licensing agreement with Sony Pictures Television, allowing it to add the sixth and final season of Community to its library to become the exclusive streaming video on demand (SVOD) home to the complete series. (Though Yahoo streamed the comedy’s final season, Hulu content available on Yahoo will only consist of free clips from now on.) Subscribers will be able to stream all episodes of the comedy, about a study group of misfits, beginning Monday.
Along with Community, the deal wins Hulu exclusive streaming rights to WGN’s freshman dramas Underground and Outsiders, which also begin streaming Monday, with future seasons becoming available on Hulu eight days after their season finales. The complete library of Rescue Me episodes will also be available for Hulu subscribers later in August.
Hulu’s previous deal with Sony brought the complete series of Happy Endings, The Shield, Dawson’s Creek, and Damages to the streaming service.
