For more than a year it has been assumed that one day Walt Disney Company can combine the two streaming services in its possession, namely Hulu e Disney +. Although that day has not yet arrived, and there has been no official news of the possible merger, according to a recent report by Collider (a well-known entertainment site founded by Steve Weintraub), several Hulu executives have decided to leave the company. job position due to imminent staff overlap. But why make such a decision?
The US multinational, by combining the two streaming services it owns, would be much more attractive in the eyes of investors, boasting a single platform that has more than 110 million subscribers. At the moment, Disney + has managed to reach (a little more than a year after its debut) quota 73,7 million users, while Hulu (available only in some countries) would count about 36.6 million. Furthermore, the merger of the two services would represent a huge advantage not only for the company, but also for its subscribers, who would see the catalog of content available significantly increase, also being able to count on many Fox properties and provide more targeted content for a more adult audience.
The strategy of Walt Disney Company it would not surprise us that much, given that already in other countries the platforms in question (plus ESPN +) are available in a single subscription. Finally, we would like to point out that a spokesperson for Hulu he spoke about the affair to Collider's microphones, stating that it is mere speculation and that no merger is currently planned. Waiting to find out more details on the story, we remind you to take this news with due precautions, since it is based on simple assumptions.
