Partnerships Key To Mack’s Growth

In the burgeoning business of streaming television shows, Hulu has long been viewed as the distant runner-up to Netflix.

But with Walt Disney Co. poised to take a controlling stake in Hulu, the little 10-year-old streaming service once known solely for airing reruns of broadcast shows online could eventually become a credible threat to Netflix’s dominance.

Burbank-based Disney will own 60% of Hulu if its proposed $52.4-billion purchase of 21st Century Fox is approved by regulators. Hulu is currently equally owned by Fox, Disney and Comcast, which each have 30% stakes. (Fellow media giant Time Warner owns the other 10%.)

If Disney’s acquisition of Fox closes in 2019, Santa Monica-based Hulu is expected to become a pillar of Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger’s strategy to take on streaming video insurgents that are disrupting the traditional media industry.
