It looks like the streaming service Hulu could be coming to Ireland
It looks like streaming service Hulu could be coming to Ireland amid reports it is set to expand internationally.
According to NBC News, Disney CEO Bob Iger spoke about the plans to expand Hulu internationally during the latest earnings call.
Iger said Disney is hoping to get new subscribers through investing in more original programming, as well as bringing Hulu into new international markets.
The streaming service, which is currently only available in very few places across the globe, has plenty of original programming like The Handmaid's Tale, Into the Dark, Castle Rock and the upcoming Veronica Mars reboot.
Disney currently co-owns Hulu with 21st Century Fox, AT&T and Comcast, which NBCUniversal. But Disney's acquisition of Fox, which the publication notes "could gain final government approval in the next few months" is going to give Disney a 60 per cent stake in the company.
This means, in turn, that Disney will have greater control over Hulu's future.
"We think there's an opportunity to increase investment in Hulu, notably on the programming side with this acquisition comes not only some great [intellectual property] but some excellent talent particularly on the TV side."
There is no date set for Hulu's expansion just yet, but we'd imagine there is going to be more news in the coming months.
