We are also thrilled to announce that were adding over 750 library episodes from ABC Studios and ABC Family to Hulu Plus, providing full seasons of a variety of popular series. Titles now available to stream include Melissa & Joey, Alias, Army Wives, Body of Proof, Twisted and Make It or Break It and, for our younger viewers, we are adding Marvel animated series such as Spider-Man, X-Men and Iron Man: Armored Adventures.
Episodes of the critically acclaimed series Devious Maids are also now available to stream on Hulu with your Plus subscription. Subscribers can watch the entire first season, and all episodes from the second season will become available to stream next year ahead of its season three premiere on Lifetime in Summer 2015. In the category of soapy dramaswhich our viewers lovethis Eva Longoria-produced series hits the mark.
This new licensing agreement with Disney-ABC Television Group brings even more great shows to Hulus growing library of content and we are proud to add an array of exclusive & hit titles to the platform for our subscribers to enjoy this holiday season.
Hulu was founded in 2007 and has struggled to attain and keep content from major networks. Hopefully these deals will mark the start of a stronger relationship with more content companies to bring more content to Hulu. With Amazon jumping Hulu to be the second largest streaming service Hulu needs to continue to improve their content to stay relevant.
