This week Viacom decided to end its contract with Hulu. It said this was part of an effort to support traditional pay-TV providers.
So what can cord cutters do to get their favorite Viacom shows? We have good news for you! There are still many great options for cord cutters to get their Viacom shows.
Yup although Viacom pulled most of its shows there are still some Viacom shows on Hulu. Here is the short list of shows still on Hulu:
- Hit Comedy Central series “Inside Amy Schumer,” “Broad City,” “Drunk History,” and “Workaholics”
- Complete libraries of popular series including “Jersey Shore,” “Key & Peele,” and “Catfish”
- Kids programming from Nickelodeon including “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “The Thundermans,” “Rugrats,” “Rabbids Invasion,” “Drake & Josh,” and “Hey Arnold!”
- Hulu will also continue to be the exclusive streaming home to all current and library episodes of “South Park”.
#2 Sling TV and DIRECTV NOW
We asked Sling TV for comment on its future with Viacom, and this is what they sent us:
“If you’ve recently lost the option to watch your favorite Viacom shows like Spike’s ‘Lip Sync Battle,’ CMT’s ‘Nashville’ and Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show,’ check out Sling TV and our free trial offer,” said Roger Lynch, Sling TV CEO.
#3 Season Passes
The last resort is the season pass. This option is especially great if you just want one or two shows. No reason to pay a monthly bill if all you want is access to one show. Services such as Amazon Video and iTunes along with others allow you to subscribe to a season pass and often at a slight discount you can get every episode the next day. The best part is you can rewatch them at any time.
So if you only want one or two shows you may want to look at buying them with a season pass.
