Hulu and EPIX announce extensive multi-year agreement

Hulu and EPIX announced today they have closed a landmark, multi-year digital SVOD deal that will bring new releases from Lionsgate, MGM and Paramount to Hulu for the first time beginning October 1st. This means that EPIX titles will leave Netflix at the end of September.

Recent hits from EPIX, including The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, Interstellar, Selma, Top Five and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, which have never before been available on a streaming SVOD service, will become available on Hulu in the coming months.

At launch, blockbuster films such as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Trek Into Darkness, World War Z, The Wolf of Wall Street, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, RoboCop, God’s Not Dead, and more, will become available to Hulu subscribers for the first time.

Comedies, including Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa, Anchorman 2, and Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas, as well as indie favorites such as In a World, All is Lost, and Much Ado About Nothing will also be available streaming this October. The extensive collection of popular, classic film titles from EPIX includes franchises such as the James Bond, Rocky, Star Trek, Paranormal Activity, Beverly Hills Cop, and Friday the Thirteenth films. Epix Original Specials, including Katy Perry: The Prismatic World Tour, Russell Brand: Messiah Complex, P!nk: The Truth about Love Tour, and Jenny McCarthy’s Dirty Sexy Funny will also be available.

“Hulu already offers some of the best and biggest titles in television programming, but our subscribers have been asking us for more, and more recent, big movies. We listened. Through this new deal with EPIX, we are proud to now be able to offer a huge selection of the biggest blockbusters and premium films,” said Craig Erwich, SVP, Head of Content, Hulu. “This is a landmark deal for Hulu and it marks a huge expansion for our offering of premium programming.”

“Hulu has become one of the most popular premium streaming services and EPIX’s agreement is evidence of their understanding of the value that our blockbuster Hollywood films, deep library of classic film titles and original programming brings to consumers,” said Mark Greenberg, President and CEO of EPIX. “We are excited to be partnering with Hulu, and share their commitment to providing viewers a truly premium experience, particularly as we enter the next phase of our network’s growth and development.”

Hulu will continue to roll out new hit titles, library films and original programming from EPIX through each year of the deal, bringing thousands of new theatrical releases and classic film titles to Hulu subscribers. All new theatrical releases and original programming will be available during its digital streaming window, which begins 90 days after the start of the traditional pay television window.

The deal represents a significant expansion in Hulu’s film offering. Over the past year, Hulu has become the streaming home to a significant number of films from the IFC Films collection through its deal with AMC Networks, and became the first-ever streaming service to offer a premium add-on through its platform with its distribution deal with SHOWTIME. Hulu is also the exclusive streaming home to hundreds of classic, award-winning films from The Criterion Collection.
