New deal adds more sci-fi to service

Hulu has signed a distribution deal with NBC Universal that adds a number of the company's series to the streaming service, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The titles currently streaming in their entirety as part of the new agreement include Syfy's 12 Monkeys and older favorites Saved By the Bell and Battlestar Galactica. Kids shows like Bob the Builder and Barney will also appear on Hulu at a later date. A Hulu Plus subscription is required to access each of these series.

The acquisition of Battlestar Galactica marks its return to streaming. Despite gaining posthumous popularity on Netflix, the sci-fi drama was removed from that service in 2014. The show was without a streaming home until Hulu and rights owner Universal struck up the expanded partnership.

This is the latest of Universal's renewed plans for Battlestar Galactica, which ended in 2009 after four seasons on Syfy. Yesterday, it was announced that a major film franchise based on the series was in the works at the studio. It will serve as a relaunch of the mid-'00s television show, which was itself a reboot of the original Battlestar Galactica from 1978.
