Today FOX and Hulu announced a new deal to keep FOX’s primetime content streaming on Hulu. This deal lets Hulu stream popular FOX shows the next day after they air first on FOX.
“Our long-standing, valued partnership with Hulu consistently generates impressive results and creates an important pathway for our scripted, unscripted and animated series to maximize viewer reach,” Fox Entertainment CEO Rob Wade said. “Under this new deal, Fox solidifies its longer-term streaming strategy, while harnessing the power and strength of both Hulu and Fox to better serve our audiences and bring visibility to premium content across our streaming and linear platforms.”
“Continuing to be the next-day streaming home for current FOX hits, along with out-of-season episodes of well-loved FOX titles, reinforces Hulu’s unique position in the streaming space – as the only SVOD service to carry next-day series from multiple broadcast networks,” said Joe Earley, President of Hulu. “FOX has always been a great partner, but now Rob and his teams are leveling-up our relationship with their new marketing commitments, helping viewers understand where they can watch all of these shows.”
This deal will keep 9-1-1, The Simpsons, The Cleaning Lady, Hell’s Kitchen, LEGO Masters, and more on Hulu for years to come.
FOX and Hulu did not disclose the financial details of the contract.
