The network says it has agreed a non-exclusive, multi-year deal with BBC Worldwide North America that will allow it to deliver BBC content to its subscribers. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The Hulu Plus service has provided a number of U.K. programmes since its launch and the new deal makes it one of the top destinations in the U.S. for British content, says Siliconvalley.com.
