*Online video service Hulu has added “The Cosby Show,” “Whoopi,” “The Tracy Morgan Show” and eight other Carsey Werner classic sitcoms to its Hulu Plus subscription service.
A rep for Hulu, in which Walt Disney, News Corp. and Comcast’s NBCUniversal are partners with private equity firm Providence Equity Partners, declined to comment on the deal, which kicked in mid-November.
The content deal covers 11 classic shows and 580 episodes, a source confirmed. The other series included are “Grounded For Life,” “3rd Rock from the Sun,” “That 80’s Show,” “Damon,” “Men Behaving Badly,” “Game Over,” “Davis Rules” and “Normal, Ohio.”
Financial terms weren’t immediately clear. Hulu Plus costs subscribers $7.99 per month and offers them a deeper content library.
