Hulu Inks Deal With Magnolia Pictures for Pay-TV Window Streaming Rights, After Netflix Pact Expires

The deal comes after Netflix’s output deal with Magnolia recently expired after three years. Under Hulu’s pact with Magnolia Pictures, films will become available to stream exclusively on Hulu following their theatrical run; the companies did not say how long the agreement will run.
