June 30th, 2018 Update: M*A*S*H began streaming on Hulu on June 29th. See this post for details. I’ve closed comments on this post.
M*A*S*H will soon be available on Hulu, thanks to a massive deal between the streaming service and 20th Century Fox Television Distribution. All 11 seasons will start streaming “later this summer,” according to Variety. Launched publicly in March 2008, Hulu competes with Netflix and Amazon.
This news comes more than a year after M*A*S*H disappeared from Netflix in April 2016, angering countless fans.
The agreement between Hulu and 20th Century Fox includes almost 3,000 episodes from more than 25 TV shows new and old. In addition to M*A*S*H, Hulu has secured streaming rights to shows like How I Met Your Mother, The Bob Newhart Show, The Grinder, NYPD Blue, Bones, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and St. Elsewhere. A complete list can be found at Variety.
Hulu is currently only available in the United States and Japan. In the United States, subscriptions cost $7.99 per month with advertisements or $11.99 per month without ads.
