Viacom, the massive corporation that owns Comedy Central, Nickelodeon and MTV, among other networks, is planning to kick-off its own over the top streaming service by Fall 2018. The eventual service will compete against the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, CBS All Access and HBO Now.

The corporation’s service, should it launch on time, would beat the Disney-owned streaming service to the punch, which is set to host a number of Star Wars-centric TV series.

Viacom CEO Bob Bakish revealed plans for the streaming service (via Deadline).

Last year, Viacom removed most of its programming from Hulu, in an attempt to encourage viewers to stick to the traditional cable subscription model. Now it seems this was only a step towards Viacom launching its own service.

“We do not view this as a substitute product,” Bakish said. “We view this as a complement.”

A Viacom streaming service would likely have a host of popular series from its various subsidiaries, including South Park, SpongeBob SquarePants, The State and the revered ’90s comic book animated series The Maxx.
