Right now, CBS is the only major U.S. broadcaster without any of its shows appearing on popular streaming video site Hulu.com. But that may all change, as the network’s CEO says the two companies are currently having chats about providing CBS content to the site’s HuluPlus subscribers.
Said Les “Mr. Julie Chen” Moonves:
Are we having discussions with the Hulu subscription service? Yes we are… Our goal is to get paid for our content in as many different ways as we can without hurting the mother ship. The key here is flexibility.
But the question is: Is this something that makes the $9.99/month price tag for HuluPlus worth it? Will enough people want to pay to watch previous seasons of Survivor, CSI: Miami or Murder, She Wrote?
