Oldies But Goodies

February 1st, 2008 by Andy Forssell Acting CEO and SVP of Content

For those of you who have been keeping up with the changes and updates on Hulu.com, you may have noticed that we’ve nearly tripled our content library since our beta launch. Most recently, we’re excited to welcome Sony Pictures Television to our list of content providers with several old-time favorites such as Who’s the Boss?, The Partridge Family, What’s Happening!! and NewsRadio, as well as minisodes (5 minute re-cap clips) of Married with Children and I Dream of Jeannie. Stay tuned, as this is just the beginning of a lot of great Sony shows that will be added in the next couple of weeks.

For you fans of reality programming, we’ve got the very first episodes of the hottest new series to help you kick off a great season. American Gladiators with Hulk Hogan and Trump’s new spin with Celebrity Apprentice are both available the morning after broadcast. Omarosa and Gene Simmons… not a combination I would have guessed I would ever see, but I have to admit that it’s fascinating to watch! The list goes on with NBC’s Deal or No Deal, Bravo’s Make Me a Supermodel and E! Entertainment’s Snoop Dogg’s Father Hood, and more.

As the content available from Hulu continues to grow, I’m really excited about what our unique combination of breadth and depth can offer to our users. Some of these shows take me back and others I’m discovering for the first time— it’s exciting that it’s becoming trivially easy to enjoy many of these oldies like never before. As an example, take a look at these videos from one of the most talented comedians of the last twenty years . . . a quick tribute to a guy for whom I have a huge amount of respect.

The team is still working hard to bring you more of the shows, clips, and movies you love, so be sure to check back often!

    I am very new to this site, like under 24 hours, but let me say this: Finally. The networks finally get it. Young college kids like me don’t want something for nothing, and we enjoy supporting the shows we like. If that means advertisements, then so be it, but the availability is the key. Some of us don’t even have TV because cable is a massive scam and most of it is crap anyways. Even though current internet technology is a little taxed by the prospect of streaming tons of videos all over the place, I’m glad that the networks have finally understood and are putting things the way they should be. Thank you!

    Totally agreed…it seems like their used to be a service that would have the episode up within 24 hours…no, wait, thats just the rest of the internets…

    I’m seeing A LOT of comments not only on this site, but on other sites that post TV Episodes complaining that there isn’t any new content, and they are blaming the sites for it. On one of the Network site people were practically suicidal because there hasn’t been a new episode of thier favorite TV show in months, so they assume that the show has been cancelled.

    For these people, bless you for your very devoted, but singular hobby of TV watching. You are making the networks very rich. But I have two words for you:

    WRITERS STRIKE!!

    There isn’t any new episodes because the writers are on strike. If you would like to see new episodes, start emailing the fat greedy corporate network executives to begin paying writers their fair share from the web content so we can all go back to our devoted, singlar focused, mind numbing TV viewing.

    Thank you,
    Kelly

    Why was Conan taken off? That’s really the only reason why I come… the rest of the shows are poorly updated and not that interesting.

    I’m glad to see all these new additions (particularly the reality TV stuff–what can I say, I’m a reality nerd), but I’m still disappointed that Hulu isn’t keeping up with current episodes of stuff like Project Runway. I keep checking back to see if there are new episodes of this series that you guys claim to keep current, and there NEVER are. :(
