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.
According to CNBC CBS and Hulu are close to a deal that will bring CBS content to Hulus new live streaming service. Details are thin right now but it looks like the deal will include CBS local stations in select markets. (Likely to start with the stations CBS owns.) From there it looks as if Showtime will also be included on Hulus new live TV streaming service.
JUST IN: CBS is in final stages of striking a deal to get the CBS network & some of its cable channels on Hulu’s live streaming service.

We still dont have any official dates or pricing for Hulus new live TV service but rumor is pricing will start between $30 and $40 a month and will include a DVR service.
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, if it is still trying to get deals with companies such as CBS it is likely that we will have to wait a little longer for full details.
