In the early 1990s, the entertainment giant launched the YouTube channel.
Today, the company is launching a social-service app to help families connect with their favorite content, including shows and movies, from Netflix and Amazon.
“We are thrilled to launch the Hulu app to bring more families into the Netflix and YouTube community,” said Jeffrey L. Smith, chief marketing officer for Hulu, in a statement.
“Hulu’s apps and services are a natural fit for families looking to get access to all the latest and greatest content.”
The app is currently available in the United States, Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, and Australia.
“As a family-friendly app, Hulu offers parents and guardians the tools to connect with each other on their favorite platforms,” Smith added.
Hulu also has a new, exclusive content service for families that includes Disney and Pixar.
The Hulu Family Service, which launches in 2019, will provide kids and families access to content from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Pixar Animation Studios, Disney Channel, Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Television, Disney Junior, Disney XD, and Disney Junior.
The service also will allow children to enjoy the Disney Channel for free.
The Disney Family Services offers an extensive library of Disney films and television shows, as well as Disney merchandise, and includes a variety of Disney content, like Disney Junior’s Disney World Vacation, Disney World Kids’ Vacation and the Disney Music Library.
In addition to Disney content and merchandise, the Family Service offers parents access to new Disney movies and TV shows, including Beauty and the Beast and Pocahontas.
The app also offers parents a wealth of other Disney content.
The Family Service will include Disney movies, television shows and live events.
Disney XD and Disney Animation Studios are not included in the Hulu Family Services.
“This new service will help our families and children discover and enjoy more of the amazing worlds they love,” said Mike DeMarco, president and chief content officer of Hulu.
“Through this service, we will be able to make the most of their time together on our platform, making it easier for them to discover and discover what’s important to them, without having to leave the comfort of their own home.”
The Hulu app will also be available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Russian.
The company said it will expand the service to other platforms in the coming months.
