Hulu, the streaming TV service now majority-owned by Walt Disney Co., may finally be heading overseas.

Disney is evaluating markets outside the U.S. for the online platform, executives said at the entertainment giant’s investor day on Thursday. The company also sees its upcoming Disney+ streaming service as an international product, “with universal appeal.” And Disney is planning a Latin American launch for its ESPN+ service.
