Comcast's NBCUniversal, one of Hulu's owners, has belatedly signed an agreement that will put NBCU networks on Hulu's about-to-launch live TV streaming service.

Hulu's other owners—21st Century Fox, the Walt Disney Co. and Time Warner's Turner—signed agreements before the new service was announced in January. CBS also signed on in January. Now, with NBCU in the fold, Hulu will have all four major broadcasters available for subscribers.

In addition to the NBC broadcast network, NBCU networks on the new live service will include Telemundo, USA, Syfy, Bravo, E!, MSNBC, CNBC and NBCSN.

The agreement also includes what the companies called a "framework" for licensing NBC and Telemundo affiliates for carriage on the live Hulu service.
