CBS is taking its older content to streaming service Hulu's premium service Hulu Plus. Hulu is co-owned by all of CBS's major competitors; the content licensed is a mirror image of the shows covered by the deal signed with Netflix not long ago. The streaming service, co-owned by Disney, NBCUniversal, News Corp. and Providence Equity Partners, will now show library content including recent series like Medium, Numb3rs and CSI: Miami, as well as vintage shows including Star Trek, I Love Lucy and The Twilight Zone to paying customers (Hulu's free edition won't include the CBS library shows).

CBS content has been announced as part of Hulu's offerings in Japan, and content produced by the network for The CW has also aired on the streaming service.
