Hulu, NEON content deal
April 24, 2017
Hulu and NEON have signed a new, multi-year output licensing agreement for all upcoming films and content released via NEON. The deal marks the first of its kind for NEON, and will expand Hulu’s growing offering of new acclaimed films with all of NEON’S future titles becoming available to stream exclusively on Hulu following their theatrical release.
NEON, the distribution company formed by Tom Quinn and Tim League, released its first feature, Nacho Vigalondo’s Colossal, on April 7th. The company also recently announced the launch of a short film division (NEON shorts), which brings back the long-honoured tradition of combining feature films with shorts.
“This output deal represents a ground-breaking approach to building the most comprehensive and interactive platform dedicated to visionary cinema. NEON is thrilled to find a partner as innovative, collaborative, and as transparent as Hulu. It’s a perfect match,” said NEON co-founder and CEO Tom Quinn.
“Our partnership with NEON marks another big step forward in our commitment to offering a world class collection of films to our subscribers,” said Craig Erwich, SVP and Head of Content, Hulu. “NEON has already acquired a highly-anticipated slate of films this year and we can’t wait to bring their titles from the theatres to the Hulu audience.”
