Hulu Earns Rights to Nashville, All Seasons Now Available

nashville-headerHulu has just earned the rights to make full seasons of Nashville available to Hulu Plus subscribers.

If you are a Hulu Plus member you will now be able to watch all of season one, Variety reported. This is made possible because of a multiyear licensing pact with Disney/ABC Television Group.

According to Variety, Disney is actually one of Hulu’s parent companies. Camcast’s NBCUniversal and 21st Century Fox are also parent companies of Hulu. Variety said: “But Hulu so far has not seemed to enjoy preferential treatment in jockeying for subscription VOD rights against the likes of Netflix and Amazon.”

If you are one of those people that watch shows online the next day you might have noticed that ABC has started restricting next-day access to new episodes. I found this out the hard way when I went onto ABC to watch Revenge. If you are subscriber to a participating pay-TV affiliate or a Hulu Plus subscriber, then you will have access to the latest content. If you don’t have one of the TV affiliates or are not a Hulu Plus member, then you have to wait one week to get access to the new episodes.

Hulu Plus is only $7.99 a month and gives you access to exclusive and expanded content on multiple devices.

Nashville will return February 26th at 10/9c on ABC, but if you are a Hulu Plus member you can re-watch season one while you wait.
