Big news for British TV fans! Hulu has announced a new partnership with BBC Worldwide, giving them access to 144 British TV shows and over 2,000 episodes of content.
The new content will be available starting this month.
The multi-year partnership with BBC Worldwide North America will add shows such as “Doctor Who,” “Torchwood,” “Sherlock,” “MI-5,” and “Luther” to the online service.
The agreement isn’t exclusive – the BBC has similar relationships with Netflix and Amazon, which also have large libraries of British TV. Also, they’re only licensing the BBC Archive, so they won’t be putting up new episodes of shows right after they air.
Hulu already has a great selection of British TV including the British Soap Coronation Street and hit drama Downton Abbey.
You can browse many of the shows available here: Hulu British TV.
Hulu Plus costs $7.99 a month and while some shows will be available for free without a membership, most will require a subscription to Hulu Plus.
Combine this with AcornTV and you’ll never run out of great British Telly to watch!
