Yeah, it's just a matter of time when Comcast sells its share of Hulu to Disney. I suspect that many Fox movies and some Disney stuff will be run on Hulu.
Bob Iger on the deal...
Clearly the Cable and [likely] Satellite giants are aware of and concerned about the current cord-cutting trend. This is [IMO] their most overt and aggressive gesture to date. They are now trying to align on the Internet front by buying up [or restricting as the case may be] content.
I suspect many will ultimately be converted but you shouldn't feel pressured to assimilate as there remains a plethora of [FREE] content out there if you have a decent Internet connection and are willing to spend a few minutes searching for it. When you're not in the mood to search, try Netflix or any number of other streaming platforms.
I can see the war is on but , in my case, "I'm a warrior so I stay prepared for war" [Mack 10] and intend to win even if it means I have to do without certain content for awhile
Perhaps this will get Hulu to finally add 5.1 audio support for both Roku and Apple TV.
I predict, as Comcast slowly sells their stake to Disney over the next 5 years, a lot of NBC/Universal content will migrate over to NBC's upcoming streaming platform.
Ultimately, Hulu will no longer be the cord-cutting alternative that it is today.
For me, it's very simple. I have Hulu for the sole purpose of being able to watch a handful of shows from most networks at my leisure, and not pay for cable. When it stops being that, they lose my business. End. Of. Story.
I would bet you're right. Ten years from now there will be two Disney streaming services: Disney+ for the family-friendly content, and Hulu for the more mature content.
To get the Big Three networks, you'll need to subscribe to Hulu and CBS All Access (if it hasn't gone out of business or been absorbed into a larger Viacom streaming service by then) and the NBU/Universal streaming service. And those three services will cost more than cable did twenty years or so ago.
And offline viewing! I want to watch Star vs the Forces of Evil on the go!
Nowadays, I'm not into TV shows much so losing TV programs isn't that big of deal for me. I rather have access to tons of movies from Fox and Disney that will never play on Disney+ because of their content and film rating.
Hulu is now streaming in 4K, but not (yet) HDR...
So essentially, Hulu will Meld into Disney Plus over time, right?
No. They will be kept separate.
It's been speculated that PG-13 and R-rated films from Disney's holdings (including Fox) will go to Hulu for streaming. Disney+ will have G and PG entertainments.
Disney+ will have PG-13 content. Most (if not all) of the Marvel Studios films are PG-13.
Yep, and so are all the new Star Wars movies.
Nice that Hulu has 4K but, I hope Disney also upgrades the audio to at least 5.1. It is long overdue.
