Hulu Launches Fall Lineup, Premieres Before TV Broadcast

Hulu on Tuesday announced that it has launched its Fall Premiere Lineup, which over the next seven weeks, will be the place to find season premieres of Prison Break, Bones, House, Heroes, The Office and 30 Rock.

To build up the hype around new shows or those in their second season, Hulu will also debut the first episode of Knight Rider, Lipstick Jungle, Chuck and Life, one week before they air on broadcast television.

The decision to debut shows on Hulu first is an interesting one. For years, TV studios were loath to even put television shows on the Web and most wanted to maintain the same business model they had clung to for years. But now that they’ve realized there is money to be made online, the studios are embracing the Web like never before.
