Disney movies

Disney does own a 30% stake in Hulu so this deal makes plenty of sense as it should bolster the Hulu offerings and perhaps attract new viewers.

The streaming wars continue with Hulu and Netflix duking it out for your precious viewing hours and Hulu just scored a big goal. The company has signed a licensing deal for 50+ Disney movies which is sure to draw some viewers attention. The Disney movies included in the deal will roll out steadily over the next few months and some further into 2017. Some of the Disney movies included in the deal are listed below, check them out!

  • Tarzan
  • Step Up
  • Gone in 60 Seconds
  • Pearl Harbor
  • Lilo & Stitch
  • The Emperor’s New Groove
  • Muppet Treasure Island
  • The Princess and the Frog
  • Air Bud
  • Sister Act
  • The Nightmare Before Christmas
  • Pocahontas
  • The Mighty Ducks
  • Hercules
  • and more to come

This new Hulu-Disney licensing agreement means Disney is now splitting its movie library between multiple services, as the company had a prior deal with Netflix, announced back in 2012, that allows Netflix to stream Disney films – including those from Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Marvel, Pixar, and Lucasfilm – within the same window as they would be allowed on paid cable TV networks, like HBO.

Disney does own a 30% stake in Hulu so this deal makes plenty of sense as it should bolster the Hulu offerings and perhaps attract new viewers. Many streaming cord-cutters actually use both services (Netflix/Hulu) in tandem as they each offer a variety of great programs for a reasonable monthly cost. If you’ve never used Hulu before, they do have a free trial period where you can test out the service and cancel should you not want to continue. The basic package is $7.99USD and you can add other things on top of that but the basic package isn’t all that bad, hit the link below to check Hulu out for yourself.
