It’s not clear what’s going on with The CWs own streaming initiatives but Hulu is apparently getting access to The CW shows regardless.
Last year The CW reached a complicated agreement with Hulu to show only the five more recent episodes of TV shows the next day. After five weeks, that episode would disappear from the network, but now that’s changing. Hulu will not only be offering live streaming in coming months of The CW, but also add on-demand options for current series.
The CW has warmed up to other providers as well, just recently making a deal with DirecTV Now.
