Miramax, Hulu in multi-year deal

MUMBAI: Online TV service Hulu and US movie studio Miramax have announced a multi-year agreement to bring hundreds of films like Pulp Fiction, Good Will Hunting, Scream, Swingers and The English Patient from the Miramax film library to Hulu Plus subscribers.

In addition, Hulu will offer select films via the ad-supported Hulu service.

Hulu Plus subscribers will be able to watch hundreds of Miramax movies in HD (when available), on multiple platforms including TV, tablet, computer and mobile phones, and free of advertising interruption.

Additionally, Hulu will soon rotate a selection of approximately 15 Miramax films each month through with periodic ad breaks, the first time Miramax titles have become available through an ad-supported streaming service.
Miramax CEO Mike Lang said, “Making our films available via premium digital distribution channels is extremely important to Miramax. Hulu has established its presence in the market as a leader in innovation and in delivering value for consumers and content owners. As one of the early promoters of Hulu and its CEO Jason Kilar, I couldn’t be more excited than to be in business with them today, and we’re thrilled about the prospect of enhancing both our brands by making our films accessible to Hulu’s fast-growing audience.”

Hulu CEO Jason Kilar said, “The Miramax library includes some of the most popular and acclaimed films ever produced. It is an honour for the Hulu team to present our users a film roster that includes the likes of Pulp Fiction, My Left Foot, The English Patient and many more.”

With this agreement, cinemaphiles interested in Academy Award winning dramas can now watch Good Will Hunting, The Piano and My Left Foot. Fans of cult classics will see Chasing Amy, Clerks, Swingers, Sling Blade, From Dusk Till Dawn, The Crying Game, Strictly Ballroom, Muriel’s Wedding and Reservoir Dogs. Foreign film fans can watch Amelie, Life is Beautiful and Cinema Paradiso. Horror buffs can enjoy many of the Halloween, Scary Movie, Scream and Hellraiser titles. And the Spy Kids films will make for a great family movie night.
