LOS ANGELES (AP) — Current season shows on The CW including "The Vampire Diaries" and "Gossip Girl" are coming to Hulu.
The network announced a five-year deal with the online streaming service Friday.
Subscribers who pay $8 a month for Hulu Plus will get the five most recent episodes from The CW's lineup the day after they are broadcast on television. The same episodes will then be available on CWTV.com three days after broadcast. Eight days after broadcast, the episodes will be available on the free version of Hulu for computers.
Earlier this month, The CW agreed to make all its previous seasons shows available to subscribers of Netflix Inc.'s streaming plan, which also costs $8 a month.
The CW is co-owned by CBS Corp. and Time Warner Inc.'s Warner Bros.
