Disney now has control over Hulu after cutting a deal with Comcast. Disney will be gaining full control of Hulu as of now for about $5.8 billion!
“We are now able to completely integrate Hulu into our direct-to-consumer business and leverage the full power of The Walt Disney Company’s brands and creative engines to make the service even more compelling and a greater value for consumers,” Disney chairman/CEO Bob Iger said in a statement about the pact.”
This is an important thing to happen now especially with Disney coming out with their own app. Curious to see if it will change the future of the app like maybe have it merge with Hulu or be completely separate.
