Ahoy Hulu!

Thanks to a deal with Lionsgate, you can now catch Starz’s swashbuckling drama Black Sails on Hulu’s subscription streaming service.

Hulu is offering access to all 28 episodes from the first three seasons, and will stream the 10-episode fourth and final season when it becomes available.

Black Sailsset 20 years before Robert Louis Stevenson’s classicTreasure Island,  follows “the most feared pirate of the day, Captain Flint,” who is played by Toby Stephens, aka Bond villain Gustav Graves from Die Another Day. Other veterans of the period-piece and fantasy genres in the cast include Hannah New (Maleficent), Jessica Parker Kennedy (The Secret Circle), Tom Hopper (Merlin, Game of Thrones), Ray Stevenson (Rome) and Luke Roberts (Wolf Hall, Game of Thrones.) Luke Arnold, the lead in INX: The Michael Hutchence Story, rounds out the cast.

Hulu offers two subscription options: a $7.99 monthly plan, with limited commercials; and a $11.99 monthly ad-free plan.

You can also watch Black Sails with an $8.99 monthly online Starz subscription; or you can stream individual episodes from the first three seasons starting at $1.99 on Vudu and other sites.
