Disney plans international roll-out of Hulu

Streaming service Hulu could be on its way to the UK after statements from Disney Chief Exec Bob Iger suggested international roll-out was being planned.

The subscription video-on-demand service has been around in the USA since 2007. At a presentation to discuss the company's latest earnings figures, Disney's Bob Iger confirmed that an international roll-out of Hulu was being planned for 2021, with the company first of all focusing on getting Disney+ rolled out around the world first.

Answering a question on the subject, Mr Iger said:
"We feel that we need to concentrate on those [Disney+] launches, and the marketing and the creation of product for those, and then come in with Hulu, right after or soon after that." 

Disney also confirmed that 28.6 million people had signed up for Disney+ since its launch in November. It will arrive in the UK next month.
