Hulu Plus to add CBS content soon? CBS CEO Les Moonves has confirmed this week that the number one U.S. broadcaster is in active talks to bring some of its shows to Hulu, the popular online streaming service.
Hulu Plus is the site's new premium version which launched in June and costs $9 per month.

Users of Hulu Plus can watch full back-catalogs of available shows while free Hulu users can only watch the trailing five episodes of a current season.

CBS has the incredibly popular shows "CSI," "Two and a Half Men," and "Big Bang Theory" among others, and remains the only broadcaster to not include its content on Hulu.

"Are we having discussions with the Hulu subscription service? Yes we are," Moonves says. "Our goal is to get paid for our content in as many different ways as we can without hurting the mother ship. The key here is flexibility."

CBS recently signed a 10-year content deal with Comcast for on-demand and Web video.

Hulu PLUS??? What a bullsh*t site. Absolute crap!!!!!! First, there aren't that many losers out there to merit a market for "back logged" TV shows. Seriously. Get a life before watching 1,2 and 3 year old TV shows.

Second..............did you miss a show from a couple months ago???? and search for it.

As far as I'm concerned; and I believe most would agree, TV shows came as part of the high price I/we pay for cable service and frankly, if I want to watch them again or missed one then I/we have the RIGHT to get them for free. Tough sh*t and F you to the networks for attempting to charge
