How Will Disney Manage Hulu and Launch a Competing Streaming Service at the Same Time?

Big question: How will Disney handle both Disney+ and Hulu?

Updated Hulu ownership:
1) Disney: 60%
2) Comcast: 30%
3) WarnerMedia: 10%

Quote from Bob Iger — CEO @ Disney:
“We aim to use the television production capabilities of the combined company to fuel Hulu with a lot more original programming, original programming that we feel will enable Hulu to compete even more aggressively in the marketplace.”

Old is new: Could we see some type of “new bundle” that consists of Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu? What a concept!
