Variety announced this morning that the Hulu catalog will get quite a bump.
The Walt Disney Co. is taking a stake in Hulu.com. This means titles from The Walt Disney Studios library of films and full-length episodes of ABC television shows will join the online video site.
Disney joins NBC Universal, News Corp. and private equity firm Providence Equity Partners, who own Hulu in a joint venture.
Disney said Chief Executive Robert Iger, Disney/ABC Television Group President Anne Sweeney and Kevin Mayer, a Disney senior vice president, will join Hulu's board.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
I doubt many Disney films or even Disney Channel programs, but I suspect all full episodes of ABC series and lot's of ESPN clips will be forthcoming.
