New York, NY (PRWEB) March 2, 2009

Dailymotion, one of the world's largest independent video sharing sites, today announced a distribution agreement with Hulu, an online video service that offers hit TV shows, movies and clips at Hulu.com and other online destination sites -- all for free, anytime in the U.S. The deal with Hulu follows Dailymotion's strategy of delivering the highest-quality online video entertainment experience, with premium-level programming and superior video streaming and viewing technology.

The agreement with Hulu will give Dailymotion's audience access to an additional 40,000 premium videos from Hulu's extensive online video library, including full-length episodes from major television studios, full-length feature films from major film studios, as well as news and other content from more than 130 content providers.

Following Dailymotion's curated approach, the additional videos from Hulu will be programmed in channels including Funny, Film & TV, Music and Sports & Extreme along-side the site's library of licensed professional and Motionmaker independently produced content. Using tools including Dailymotion's Videowall, Videozap or Jukebox, viewers will also be able to program Hulu content into their own channels and playlists and share it with friends.
