Hulu To Offer Trek In JapanPosted by T'Bonz - 01/09/11 at 12:09 pm
Star Trek fans in Japan will be able to see Star Trek via Hulu’s subscription-only service.
CBS Corporation and Hulu announced the multi-year, non-exclusive licensing agreement that will offer certain television shows from across CBS Corporation to be streamed instantly.
The shows include previous seasons of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, NCIS and the CW’s 90210, as well as Numb3rs, Twin Peaks and Star Trek.
It was not made clear if Star Trek referred to the original series only, or to more than one of the various televised series.
“We’re thrilled to have CBS’s world class content be part of Hulu’s first international market and their new venture in Japan,” said Armando Nuñez, President, CBS Studios International. “This new subscription service marks yet another opportunity to deliver CBS programming to more global viewers in a way that complements our traditional licensing business and realizes even more incremental value from our library.”
Hulu in Japan will be Hulu’s first international expansion.
