The new content deal between the owner of Comedy Central, Viacom Inc., and the online venture owned by ., The Walt Disney Co. and Corp.'s NBC Universal was announced Wednesday.

Terms were not disclosed

Hulu CEO Jason Kilar applauded the deal by citing an abbreviation from "Jersey Shore" meaning "down to snuggle": "We are thankful that was DTS."
