Hulu Expands Relationship with MGM and Becomes Your Exclusive Streaming Destination for Emmy®-Award Winning Miniseries Fargo

December 19th, 2014 by Lisa Holme Vice President, Content Acquisition

It’s no secret that, at Hulu, we are passionate about TV. We are in a golden age of television and there are so many great shows available to watch at any given time – but there are only a select few that can come along and make a long lasting impact within just their first season. This year, Fargo was undoubtedly one of those shows.

After taking home the Emmy® Award for Best Miniseries, and nabbing more Golden Globe nominations than any other series, Fargo is one of the biggest titles of the year. That’s why I am thrilled to announce that Hulu has acquired the exclusive subscription streaming rights to the breakout hit.

The entire first season will be available to stream on Hulu with your Plus subscription ahead of its highly anticipated season two premiere on FX in Fall 2015. Based on the critically acclaimed film, Fargo sustains momentum throughout the entire miniseries with an incredible script and cast that includes Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Colin Hanks and Allison Tolman. You may never look at your laundry room the same way again. We just love this series and cannot wait for our viewers to watch and re-watch the high caliber of acting and storytelling that Fargo offers in each episode.

Fargo is part of an agreement that represents an overall expansion in our streaming video on-demand relationship with our partners at MGM. This means that, starting today, we will be making great MGM titles available to our Hulu subscribers for the first time.

In addition to Fargo, subscribers can now enjoy The History Channel’s hit historical drama, Vikings, on Hulu. The entire first and second seasons of the series are available to stream now – giving you the perfect excuse to relive the action-packed Viking Age days before season 3 returns.

We are also adding thousands of episodes of classic MGM series including sci-fi titles such as the Stargate series (Stargate Universe, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate: SG-1) and nostalgic series such as Flipper, Green Acres and Addams Family. It also includes cult favorites Thirtysomething, Dead Like me and Outer Limits, as well as family series and kids series such as All Dogs Go to Heaven and the Pink Panther Cartoons. We hope you and your family will enjoy these classics during the holidays.

MGM has been a longtime partner of ours and we could not be happier to continue working with them to offer more premium titles for all tastes & ages.
