FX on Hulu

When The Walt Disney Company acquired 20th Century Fox, that included the cable network FX and all of the shows that come along with it. Since Disney is also the majority stakeholder in Hulu, they’re bringing them both together with a new deal that will bring FX’s existing shows, new shows, and nearly all of their old shows exclusively to Hulu.

During a fourth quarter earnings call on Thursday, Disney CEO Bob Iger laid out the company’s plan to create “FX on Hulu” starting in March. Along with the library content of old and current shows, “FX on Hulu” will also see upcoming shows moved from airing on FX to debuting only through streaming by way of this new deal between the cable channel and streaming service.
