Are you ready, kids? Current season Nickelodeon shows are now available on Hulu Plus.

With three young kids of my own, I’m reminded daily of the power of the Nickelodeon brand and the quality of their shows.  That’s why I am so excited about today’s announcement: as of today, Hulu Plus is the only subscription-based on-demand Internet video provider that offers current season Nickelodeon programming. Kids can watch the latest five episodes of their favorite Nickelodeon shows online, on connected TVs, set-top boxes, video game consoles and mobile devices. All Nickelodeon programming will be available on Hulu Plus without advertising, 21 days after air.

With Hulu Plus, kids and teens can catch up on the latest episodes of the new (and final) season of “iCarly” whenever, wherever they want. We’ll also have shows featuring all of their favorite Nick Stars, including the boy band heartthrobs of “Big Time Rush,” Victoria Justice of “VICTORiOUS,” Cymphonique Miller of “How to Rock” and the Ninjas of “Supah Ninjas.”

Keeping things animated, the lovable citizens of Bikini Bottom and the Furious Five have joined in on the fun, too. Hulu Plus now offers new episodes of “SpongeBob SquarePants,” “Kung Fu Panda,” “The Penguins of Madagascar,” “Winx Club,” “Robot & Monster,” “The Legend of Korra” and “T.U.F.F. Puppy,” among others. After its anticipated premiere, your favorite ninjas-in-training can also watch new episodes of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” on their phones while on the go.

In addition to the Nickelodeon programming we added to Hulu Plus, we are also broadening our Hulu Latino selection on Hulu Plus to include content from Viacom’s network for bilingual young Latinos, Tr3s. Over the next few months, we will begin adding Tr3s content to Hulu Latino – from the charm school chicas of “Niñas Mal” to the popular series following diverse Latino families facing major rites of passage, “Quiero Mis Quinces,” “Quiero Mi Boda and “Quiero Mi Baby.”

And of course, as election season heats up, it’s important to remember that “The Colbert Report” and “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” remain available the day after airing on Comedy Central on the free Hulu service and in HD on the Hulu Plus subscription service.

Hulu Plus will continue to offer current season and library programming on Hulu Plus from Viacom’s family of networks including MTV, Comedy Central, VH1, SPIKE, TV Land and BET. The broad content offering includes more great Viacom programming like BET’s “American Gangster,” MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” Logo’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” “Spike TV’s “1000 Ways to Die” and VH1′s “Basketball Wives” and “Mob Wives,” among so many others.

We hope you enjoy the content that comes to you as a result of this expanded partnership with Viacom.

Stress mark should be marked with [capitals] to indicate the primary stressed syllable, as in: news・pa・per [NOOZ-pey-per] in・for・ma・tion [in-fer-MEY-shuhn]

On living room, mobile, and tablet devices, the color gradient overlay is dynamic and will change based on the cover story art. It is not something we can control on our end.

If the tagline/date messaging doesn’t fit within the 11 syllables max, it can be included as text.

Q: When is letterboxing allowed and not allowed?

A: When the native aspect ratio is 1.78:1 or 1.33:1 throughout the entire program, there should not be any letterboxing (black bars on top and bottom), nor should there be any pillarboxing (black bars on either side). We should should see an active picture take up the full frame. If the aspect ratio is wider than 1.78:1, such as 2.35:1, matting on the top and bottom is permissible. Additionally, if there is a creative choice to add matting or if there is a mix of native aspect ratios, this is usually waived, but please reach out to your Hulu representative to confirm.

Q: Should the bitrate be constant if delivering ProRes codec?
A: No, since ProRes codec is built to be variable, this is waived.

Q: Can you accept bitrate higher than 30 Mbps?
A: Yes, we can accept bitrate beyond the recommended range for H.264 and ProRes. In the case of ProRes, bitrate will often exceed 30 Mbps due to its variable setting.

Q: What does native frame rate mean?

A: Native frame rate refers to the frame rate the source footage was shot. Whenever possible, we require all videos to be delivered in their native frame rate. This means that no frame rate conversion should be performed, which includes adding 3:2 pulldown for broadcast.

Q: Why do you ask for progressive?

A: The Hulu player, unlike traditional broadcast, does not play back interlace scan, so we require that all videos be delivered with their scan type set to progressive. If your video is natively interlaced, you must de-interlace it to progressive and you must employ a de-interlace filter that does not result in blending or ghosting artifacts. We recommend an auto-adaptive de-interlace if available.

Q: Why do you prefer PCM codec?

A: PCM codec is lossless audio quality, so whenever possible, please deliver PCM audio.
