The content expansion includes new episodes of MTV’s Jersey Shore, The Hills, and episodes of The Buried Life and The City. It also has new shows from BET including American Gangster, and more Comedy Central content like episodes of The Sarah Silverman Program. There’s also content form VH1, Logo, and Spike. For the kids, episodes of Nickelodeon’s Yo Gabba Gabba, and more episodes of Spongebob SquarePants, True Jackson VP, iCarly, and Dora the Explorer are in the mix.
