Hulu Adds SHOWTIME Via Subscription Option

Los Angeles-based streaming television site Hulu said Tuesday that it has added a new, subscription option to access SHOWTIME, as part of its premium video service. Hulu said that, for $8.99 per month--on top of its existing, $7.99 per month subscription--its viewers will have full access to both on-demand SHOWTIME shows, as well as access to both the East and West Coast live feeds of the cable channel. None of the terms of the deal between Hulu and SHOWTIME were announced.
