With three young kids of my own, I’m reminded daily of the power of the Nickelodeon brand and the quality of their shows.  That’s why I am so excited about today’s announcement: as of today, Hulu Plus is the only subscription-based on-demand Internet video provider that offers current season Nickelodeon programming. Kids can watch the latest five episodes of their favorite Nickelodeon shows online, on connected TVs, set-top boxes, video game consoles and mobile devices. All Nickelodeon programming will be available on Hulu Plus without advertising, 21 days after air.

With Hulu Plus, kids and teens can catch up on the latest episodes of the new (and final) season of “iCarly” whenever, wherever they want. We’ll also have shows featuring all of their favorite Nick Stars, including the boy band heartthrobs of “Big Time Rush,” Victoria Justice of “VICTORiOUS,” Cymphonique Miller of “How to Rock” and the Ninjas of “Supah Ninjas.”

Keeping things animated, the lovable citizens of Bikini Bottom and the Furious Five have joined in on the fun, too. Hulu Plus now offers new episodes of “SpongeBob SquarePants,” “Kung Fu Panda,” “The Penguins of Madagascar,” “Winx Club,” “Robot & Monster,” “The Legend of Korra” and “T.U.F.F. Puppy,” among others. After its anticipated premiere, your favorite ninjas-in-training can also watch new episodes of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” on their phones while on the go.

In addition to the Nickelodeon programming we added to Hulu Plus, we are also broadening our Hulu Latino selection on Hulu Plus to include content from Viacom’s network for bilingual young Latinos, Tr3s. Over the next few months, we will begin adding Tr3s content to Hulu Latino – from the charm school chicas of “Niñas Mal” to the popular series following diverse Latino families facing major rites of passage, “Quiero Mis Quinces,” “Quiero Mi Boda and “Quiero Mi Baby.”

And of course, as election season heats up, it’s important to remember that “The Colbert Report” and “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” remain available the day after airing on Comedy Central on the free Hulu service and in HD on the Hulu Plus subscription service.

Hulu Plus will continue to offer current season and library programming on Hulu Plus from Viacom’s family of networks including MTV, Comedy Central, VH1, SPIKE, TV Land and BET. The broad content offering includes more great Viacom programming like BET’s “American Gangster,” MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” Logo’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” “Spike TV’s “1000 Ways to Die” and VH1′s “Basketball Wives” and “Mob Wives,” among so many others.

We hope you enjoy the content that comes to you as a result of this expanded partnership with Viacom.
