Midcontinent to Offer Hulu, Further Expanding Programming Choices for Customers

Sioux Falls, SD: Midcontinent Communications® has announced that it will offer customers a more robust selection of video programming with the upcoming addition of Hulu, a premium streaming television destination.

Hulu will become accessible to Midcontinent® customers who use TiVo® devices when TiVo integration is complete, which is tentatively planned for later this year. Customers who subscribe to Hulu will be able to use their existing set-top boxes to view Hulu’s full library of content, in addition to live and ON Demand TV, creating a seamless viewing experience.

“At Hulu, we believe users should have the ability to consume their favorite content, when, where and how they want,” said Tim Connolly, senior vice president, distribution, Hulu. “We are very excited to partner with Midcontinent Communications to bring Hulu to users where they are already watching TV.”  

According to Brad Schoenfelder, Vice President of Operations at Midcontinent, “We’re pleased to continue to expand programming choices so our customers can conveniently access more content through a single location, their TiVo® device. Customers are increasingly requesting enhanced services such as this, and we’re happy to deliver on those expectations.”

Hulu offers full libraries of hit series such as Empire, South Park, CSI, Nashville and current season programming from five of the six top broadcast networks. For $7.99 per month, Hulu subscribers have access to stream full back seasons of programming from networks including FX, FOX, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, NBC, ABC and TNT, and current seasons of some of TV’s most popular shows. Hulu also offers the most comprehensive collection of classic films from The Criterion Collection, as well as its own library of Hulu Originals.
