Nexstar Media Group, Inc. announced today that its wholly-owned cable network, WGN America, has reached its first-ever multi-year comprehensive agreement with Hulu (Hulu.com) to be carried by the streaming service beginning Jan. 19, 2021. The agreement also restores Nexstar’s ABC-affiliated television stations to Hulu + Live TV. Today’s announcement marks Nexstar’s third agreement with a subscription-based streaming service reached this month. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The agreement enables WGN America to add approximately 4 million new Hulu + Live TV subscribers to the national reach of the cable network, currently available in approximately 75 million television households across the United States. WGN America (wgnamerica.com) is the home of NewsNation, the country’s only live nationwide newscast airing in prime-time every night.

“We are very pleased to reach an agreement with one of the country’s premier live TV streaming services and we’re looking forward to making our entertainment content and NewsNation available to 4 million new subscribers throughout the country,” said Sean Compton, President of the Networks Division of Nexstar Inc.
