FOX ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES MULTI-YEAR HULU CONTENT PARTNERSHIP
Deal Encompasses All FOX Primetime Programming and
New Multi-Platform Strategic Marketing Alliance
FOX Entertainment and Hulu have entered a multi-year content partnership, encompassing in-season streaming rights for FOX's expansive programming slate and an extensive multi-platform strategic marketing alliance, it was announced today by FOX Entertainment and Hulu.
Under the terms of the agreement, all FOX primetime entertainment programming - ranging from Family Guy and The Cleaning Lady to The Masked Singer and Next Level Chef -- will continue to stream on Hulu the next day following its linear telecast. Additionally, the deal includes a major alliance, whereby FOX and Hulu branding will jointly share presence across all FOX owned and external marketing touchpoints to align live and on-demand viewing messaging of FOX content.
"Our long-standing, valued partnership with Hulu consistently generates impressive results and creates an important pathway for our scripted, unscripted and animated series to maximize viewer reach," said Rob Wade, CEO of FOX Entertainment. "Under this new deal, FOX solidifies its longer-term streaming strategy, while harnessing the power and strength of both Hulu and FOX to better serve our audiences and bring visibility to premium content across our streaming and linear platforms."
"Continuing to be the next-day streaming home for current FOX hits, along with out-of-season episodes of well-loved FOX titles, reinforces Hulu's unique position in the streaming space - as the only SVOD service to carry next-day series from multiple broadcast networks," said Joe Earley, President of Hulu. "FOX has always been a great partner, but now Rob and his teams are leveling-up our relationship with their new marketing commitments, helping viewers understand where they can watch all of these shows."
Today's announcement follows the major program output deal between the two companies unveiled last February that allows Hulu to stream all out-of-season episodes of key FOX unscripted and animated programs.
