Next time you want to watch a Disney movie, head to Hulu.
The streaming provider on Tuesday announced it had acquired the licensing exclusive rights to more than 50 Disney theatrical films. The deal with Walt Disney Studios is Hulu’s largest catalog deal for films with a studio to date.
The multi-year deal applies to subscription video on demand, or streaming through a subscription-based provider like Hulu or Netflix.
Hulu started with TV shows but has been building up its library of movies. Netflix, meanwhile, has been moving more toward TV.
The movies included in this deal will be exclusive to Hulu, meaning they wont be on any other streaming services. Mulan, Pocahontas, Step Up, Tarzan and Air Bud are some of the movies included in the deal.
Hulu already has a selection of Disney Channel Original Movies, licensed through a deal with the Disney-ABC Television Group.
The Disney brand is synonymous with beloved movies that the whole family can enjoy, Hulu senior vice president and head of content Craig Erwich said in a statement. Expanding our offering of top-rated kids and family programming has been a top priority for us, and we know viewers will love watching these films over and over again on our service.
