CBS has long been one of the biggest holdouts when it comes to working with other streaming services. CBS seems to be dedicated to pushing all of its content and people who want to see it over to its CBS All Access Service. Now it seems that they are making some deals with other streaming services.
“We’re now starting to form a great line up of channels and we’ll have some other deals before we launch,” CEO Mike Hopkins told the Citi Internet, Media & Telecommunications Conference taking place at this week’s CES consumer electronics show.
We still don’t have any official dates or pricing for Hulu’s new live TV service but rumor is pricing will start between $30 and $40 a month and will include a DVR service.
Hulu already has deals with three of its owners — Disney (ABC), Fox, and Time Warner — and is negotiating terms with Comcast (NBC).
CES officially gets started tomorrow with the show floor opening to the public. Hopefully Hulu will release a press release with more details about the service; however this was a perfect time to make an announcement but the CEO declined to give any additional details.
