Hulu Signs Deal with Miramax for Hulu Plus Content

Select films will also be available through the free ad-supported model.

Some studios are hesitant when it comes to streaming content, but Miramax seems to have embraced the new format. Not only did they sign a significant deal with Netflix recently, they've also announced an arrangement that will bring their content to Hulu as well.

Hundreds of movies have been added to Hulu Plus for subscribers to watch now - in HD where available. The list includes titles like 'Pulp Fiction,' 'Scream,' 'Swingers,' and 'Good Will Hunting.' Fifteen of those movies will be rotated into free viewing every month, though you'll have to watch them with ad breaks.

"Making our films available via premium digital distribution channels is extremely important to Miramax," says Miramax CEO Mike Lang. "As one of the early promoters of Hulu and its CEO Jason Kilar, I couldn’t be more excited than to be in business with them today."
