With Disney in charge, Hulu plans original content push

Now that Disney is in charge of Hulu, the streaming service is going to get more original content. Hulu CEO Randy Freer told CNBC that Hulu's "investment in original programming will increase significantly." Freer credits the change to "the capacity inside of the Walt Disney Company," including its ability to invest in the best stories and creators. It's not necessarily surprising that Hulu will use its Disney money to play around with new content.
