Beginning in early April, you'll be able to stream over 300 episodes of CBS' long-running crime drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation on Hulu Plus.

This is the first time that CSI has ever been licensed to a streaming video on-demand service.

"CSI is one of the most popular television franchises in the world and we could not be more thrilled to make all episodes available to Hulu subscribers," said Craig Erwich, Senior Vice President and Head of Content, Hulu. "This deal not only represents a huge growth in our offering of premium content, but it also represents an expansion in our partnership with CBS. We look forward to working with CBS to continue making some of the best shows on television available for viewers to stream on more screens in the future."

Hulu will add full past seasons ahead of new series premieres.

Hulu and CBS first partnered up in 2012, giving the SVOD company over 2,600 episodes of current and classic CBS content. Last year, the two expanded that deal.

"The original series from the most successful franchise in television history has been licensed to the SVOD market for the first time," said Scott Koondel, Chief Corporate Content Licensing Officer for CBS Corporation. "This agreement and previous deals with our partners at Hulu further validates how well CBS procedural dramas perform on subscription services. And, at a time when the CBS Television Network is getting ready to premiere the next generation of the CSI franchise with CSI: Cyber, it's very exciting to make available all 14 seasons of the show that started it all to Hulu subscribers and CSI's passionate fan base."
