Hulu to expand internationally

In an recent earnings call with investors, Disney chairman-CEO Bob Iger announced plans to invest in more original content for Hulu (of which it has a 60% stake), and to expand the streaming platform internationally.

Some of Hulu’s current original offerings, including The Handmaid’s Tale, Castle Rock, and Marvel’s Runaways, are already licensed to Bell Media – which likely means any potential launch in Canada would be of a platform with fewer offerings than its’ American counterpart (akin to Canada’s version of CBS All Access which launched earlier this year minus Star Trek Discovery and The Good Fight).
