Hulu to stream Disney movies

American streamer Hulu has scored exclusive subscription VOD rights to more than 50 Disney feature films.

The multi-year agreement covers library movies such as The Nightmare Before Christmas, Mulan, Pocahontas, Hercules and Sister Act, which jave been made available to stream.

More than 50 of the titles will be available on Hulu for the first time. These include Con Air, Step Up, Gone in 60 Seconds, Pearl Harbor, Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion and The Mighty Ducks, and will debut in coming months.

“The Disney brand is synonymous with beloved movies that the whole family can enjoy,” said Craig Erwich, senior VP and head of content at Hulu, which counts The Walt Disney Company as a shareholder. “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.”

Programming from Disney’s channel suite are already offered through Hulu following a major agreement in June last year.

This saw Hulu improve its kids and family offering through shows such as K.C. Undercover, Star vs. the Forces of Evil, Gravity Falls and Austin & Ally debuting on the service.
