As of this post the Walt Disney Company, well Walt Disney Direct-to-Consumer and International owns it, with Comcast as an equity stakeholder. Let’s break this down.
- 21st Century Fox was acquired by Walt Disney (that is 60% of ownership)
- AT&T, sold back 10% of the company which was Time Warner in 2018
- So it was 70% in control
Comcast gave up control and they will purchase 33% of the company in 2024.
I have Hulu Plus and that is at $11.99 which is OK. I tend to watch some things here that I can’t watch other places. I like it and enjoy it. Something that you use all the time if needed.
