Hulu scores Walt Disney feature films in exclusivity deal


Back in the day, I had quite the CD collection. I even bought a 300-disc player to hold them all, making listening to my tunes more convenient. Not long after, online music became all the rage, making all of my compact discs obsolete. Now, I just stream songs and albums using Apple Music.

The same has happened to movies and television, thanks to streaming video services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu — owning discs and tapes is an outdated way of consuming. Unfortunately, deciding on which service to select can be quite confusing, but ultimately, content is king. Today, Hulu scores some significant theatrical films, thanks to a new multi-year exclusivity deal with Walt Disney Studios.

“Through the agreement, Hulu becomes the exclusive subscription video on demand home to a selection of Disney favorites including The Nightmare Before Christmas, Mulan, Pocahontas, Hercules, Sister Act and Air Bud, which are all available to stream on Hulu now”, says Hulu.

The streaming video service further shares, “the agreement will also make over 50 popular titles available to stream on Hulu for the first time. Titles including Con Air, Step Up, Gone in 60 Seconds, Pearl Harbor, Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion, The Mighty Ducks, as well as Disney blockbusters that the whole family can enjoy including Lilo & Stitch, Tarzan, The Emperor’s New Groove, Muppet Treasure Island and The Princess and the Frog, will become available on Hulu over the coming months”.

All of the listed movies are quality offerings, making Hulu much more attractive. Unfortunately, not all of the films will be made available today. Many of the videos will instead be rolled out gradually, so that over time, more Disney favorites can be discovered by subscribers. With so much content available on Hulu, that probably isn’t such a bad thing. After all, how many movies can you watch in a day?
