There was news earlier last month that Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+ was possibly going to launch with a free subscription of Hulu on November 12, 2019 .
Just a few months after purchasing 21st Century Fox, Disney is now in full operational control of Hulu.
In case you didn’t know, The Walt Disney Company now owns 60% of Hulu.
This is effective immediately. Comcast still owns 33% of the streaming company, but does not have a controlling or creative stake in the service.
Soon, I would expect an official announcement from Disney+ on the integration and addition at launch of Hulu with its new service.
If Hulu is officially included at launch with Disney+, it would help solve their problem of content volume. Though Disney does have a large, popular library of media, Netflix still has a built up advantage of original shows, movies and documentary content from years of being the leading streaming service.
