Hulu (stylized as hulu) is an American subscription video on demand service owned by Hulu LLC, a joint venture with The Walt Disney Company (through Disney–ABC Television Group) (30%), 21st Century Fox (through Fox Entertainment Group) (30%), Comcast (through NBCUniversal) (30%), and as of August 10, 2016, Time Warner (through Turner Broadcasting System) (10%, minority stake).
It is primarily oriented towards television series, carrying current and past episodes of series from its owners' respective television networks and other content partners. Previously it was divided into free and paid tiers, with the free service limited in the amount of content accessible by users and accessible via PC only, and a paid service with a larger library of content and accessed via Hulu applications for various mobile and connected devices. The subscription service is, in turn, divided into advertising-supported and mostly ad-free tiers. In 2016, Hulu spun out its free content into a joint venture with Yahoo! called Yahoo! View and launched a live television streaming service on May 3, 2017.
Hulu is offered only to users in Japan and the United States and its overseas territories.
In August 2016, Marvel Studios announced Runaways had received a pilot order, along with additional scripts, from the streaming service Hulu, based on the team of the same name. The series was ordered in May 2017. Broadcasting will begin on November 21, 2017.
