Hulu agrees to international TV deals

According to Financial Times, Hulu has signed international deals including UK programming and Saavn, one of the largest distributors of Bollywood movies.

Among the programs that will begin airing on Hulu include episodes of Green Wing, Peep Show, Doc Martin, Anything for Love and I Want To Be A Hilton, making these programs viewable to a US audience for the first time.

Last week, Disney struck a deal with Hulu, giving them a 30% stake in the company and will be airing episodes of Desperate Housewives, General Hospital, Greek, Grey's Anatomy, Hope and Faith, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Less Than Perfect, Lost, Phineas and Ferb, Private Practice, Scrubs, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Ugly Betty, The View, Wizards of Waverly Place, and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

With these new international deals, it's possible that Hulu could become viewable outside the US, and company executives are in talks to launch the site in eight of the leading international broadcast markets.
