Hulu Is Adding Over 3,000 Classic TV Episodes To Its Lineup

Mash TV series

Every major streaming service has been doing everything it can to attract new subscribers. Lately, that's meant creating their own original programming not available anywhere else, and while it definitely has some notable exclusives, Hulu is about to get a whole lot more appealing. The streaming service has just announced that it has struck a deal with 20th Century Fox and will be adding nearly 3,000 episodes of classic and hit TV series to its library. Such shows include How I Met Your Mother, MASH, and NYPD Blue.

Hulu and 20th Century Fox really want you to watch Hulu. The two companies have reached a deal that will add 3,000 of 20th Century Fox's TV series to Hulu's library. Over the coming weeks, Hulu will be adding these series to stream for its subscribers. While the list of shows is many, some of the stand-outs include, but are not limited to, MASH, Bones, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Bob Newhart Show, Dollhouse, Wilfred, Glee, Better Off Ted, Raising Hope, and The Grinder. Basically, Hulu's library is going to be spiking in content, where the libraries of other streaming services like Netflix have been shrinking over the years.

Hulu was already the exclusive home to several of 20th Century Fox's programming. A subscriber can find shows such as Empire, The Last Man on Earth, Fresh Off the Boat, and This Is Us, which was the No.1 drama series this year. This deal follows the announcement that Hulu will be adding top animated comedies from 20th Century Fox. Those shows include Bob's Burgers, American Dad, The Cleveland Show, and Futurama.

While each streaming service offers their own unique perks, TV enthusiasts might be extra interested in pursuing a monthly fee with Hulu if it means access to a library as impressive as this. It's a pretty remarkable deal between Hulu and 20th Century Fox and it's clear that Hulu is trying to draw both older and younger TV viewers into its viewership. While not every show listed above was a straight up phenomenon, plenty of them are worth checking out -- especially the older shows that people may not have ever had a chance to watch before.

Hulu will be updating its library in the coming weeks, but keep checking in with CinemaBlend and we'll keep you updated on all the latest developments as soon as that information is available.
