HBO to Share Former Fox Films With Disney+, Hulu for One Year

Walt Disney Co. amended the final year of a TV distribution deal that lets AT&T Inc.’s HBO carry movies from the former Fox studio, gaining the right to share some titles with its own Disney+ and Hulu streaming services.

The agreement, which lets HBO run films after they appear in theaters, is a holdover from when Fox was a separate company controlled by Rupert Murdoch. The deal, which still expires at the end of 2022, will include a shorter exclusive period for the films in theaters and advertising rights when they appear on the company’s respective streaming services.
