Netflix and Hulu hit the mark with their new channels
The video-streaming giant and Hulu are getting ready to launch a new Netflix-like online service, a major step toward bringing their online offerings into the same universe as the traditional TV networks.
The launch, announced Tuesday, comes amid an industry push by Netflix and its content partners to take full advantage of the power of streaming to deliver content to a wider audience.
Netflix is building its own “premium” service, but it will be a separate brand that doesn’t compete with the existing TV network offerings.
The new streaming service will not compete with Hulu or Amazon Prime, but the company has said it is working to add features that would allow it to compete with both.
Hulu will have a different model and offer its own programming as a standalone product, and Netflix will be selling its own premium content.
Netflix CEO Reed Hastings said in a blog post Tuesday that the new service will have an overall service model similar to that of its original show, “House of Cards,” and will also offer new programming that Netflix has not yet released.
Netflix will have to launch its own channels in order to compete in a broader universe of television.
Netflix already has a streaming service called “House,” which has a similar catalog of original shows as the original “House.”
Hastings said that the two will be able to compete for subscribers.
“House” has a huge fan base of viewers, who have a wide range of preferences, including some who want to watch one show at a time.
“It is an amazing opportunity for Hulu and Netflix to expand their subscriber base by building on the strength of the original ‘House,'” Hastings wrote.
Hulu has already signed up a number of former “House”-related actors and actresses, including Kate Mara, Lily Tomlin and Olivia Munn.
Netflix has long been the dominant player in the streaming game, but its offerings are not exclusive to the TV network platforms.
Netflix also has its own cable-TV streaming service, and it has a standalone streaming service.
Netflix said in the blog post that it has plans to launch the new streaming product “soon.”
It also has a competing app called “Hulu Plus,” which it said is designed to give consumers the best of both platforms.
The two companies have been pushing to expand the online TV universe, which has been dominated by traditional channels.
They both said they were working on plans to add new channels that could compete with Amazon Prime.
Netflix and Amazon are competing to bring their services to a broader audience.
Earlier this month, Netflix said it would launch a standalone Netflix-style streaming service in 2021.
“HBO Now,” which launched last year, is a limited-time offering that offers the same high-definition content that Netflix offers, but does not have HBO.
Netflix’s new streaming offering will also be compatible with Amazon’s Prime Instant Video service, which is the world’s largest video streaming service and offers access to millions of TV shows and movies.
Netflix isn’t the only company hoping to bring its content online.
Hulu, which was bought by Disney for $7.4 billion in March, said it was working on new ways to bring new shows to an online audience, and Amazon has said its streaming service would allow people to stream a range of content to one device.
Hulu said it plans to roll out its streaming app to millions more devices later this year.
“We have already created a new way to bring the best content to viewers, including new live TV series from AMC, HBO, FX and Starz,” said Dan Zifferman, the Hulu chief content officer.
“Our goal is to have our content on millions of devices in 2020 and beyond.”
