‘Daily Show’ and Colbert Report’ Headed for Hulu

Upstart web video startup Hulu will start streaming full episodes of the Colbert Report and the Daily Show but, unfortunately, video streams will only be available in the U.S.

Hulu will offer full-length episodes of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” and “The Colbert Report,” the companies said Tuesday.

The shows are from Viacom’s MTV Networks and mark the first time that the conglomerate’s content will be on Hulu, which is a joint venture of News Corp. and NBC Universal. CBS, which shares chairman Sumner Redstone with Viacom, does not have a partnership with Hulu.

Hulu is not the only Web destination that will have “The Daily Show” and “Colbert,” though. Full episodes of both shows are available on ComedyCentral.com and, in May, Comcast announced that it would stream the shows in full on its Fancast site.

Hulu has more than 70 premium content partners and morethan 700 TV and movie titles. In addition to NBC Universal andNews Corp. content, the company has deals with Warner Bros.Television Group, Lionsgate, Sony, Universal, MGM, the NBA andthe NHL.
