Back in late April, Disney signed a deal with Hulu. As part of the deal Disney would retain 27% ownership in Hulu but would be expected to add some of their owned TV shows on the video website. Through the Disney-owned channel ABC, Grey’s Anatomy has started to appear on Hulu.
It was rumored that Hulu and YouTube were competing to get the Disney deal. Google wanted Disney to be one of their first partners in offering premium content on YouTube, but they opted for ownership in Hulu instead.
Considering that Grey’s Anatomy is starting to appear on Hulu, it will only be a matter of time before we start seeing other shows such as Lost and Desperate Housewives.
