OMFG: Hulu Plus just became a lot more valuable for anyone under the age of 18 (and the rest of us who are young at heart).

The digital streaming site's expanding library is getting more packed now that it has inked a deal with The CW network. Yes, that means that current and old episodes of hits such as Gossip Girl and The Vampire Diaries will now be available on Hulu Plus.

The new five-year licensing agreement might not be as exciting or enticing for many television viewers and even current Hulu Plus subscribers given that the target age group is described as between 18 and 34.

Nevertheless, it speaks more to a younger generation that is more likely to watch current programming while streaming on computers and mobile devices, making Hulu Plus a more valuable subscription choice for that demographic as well.

Additionally, The CW has been one of the more elusive content providers when it comes to Internet streaming. That appears to be changing drastically this month as The CW also signed an agreement with Netflix earlier this month.

However, much like all of the other major TV shows available on Netflix, those episodes all stem from previous seasons and lack current season episodes.

    Why would anyone pay to have the internet service, then pay to watch ads on Hulu Plus? Screw Hulu Plus! Get rid of the ads or stop charging.

    It's about time! If you want to get viewers, best to have the show available to as large as audience as possible.<br><br>Now if a few other networks would get the hint. (And yes, the commercials are a little annoying, but not as bad as regular TV.)

    I must say that CW has been one of the more elusive content providers in the internet streaming and no one can compete them.<br><br>Regards,<br>tria laser hair removal review<br> <a href="http://www.hairremoverreviews.com/tria-laser-hair-removal-system" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.hairremoverreviews.com/tria-laser-hair-removal-system</a> <br><br>
