Comcast, Disney move up date for Hulu deal

Hulu had 48.3 million subscribers at the end of the most recent quarter, compared with 24 million paid subscribers for Peacock and 105.7 million global subscribers for Disney+.

Comcast has moved up the date for the sale or purchase of its remaining stake in Hulu to Disney to Sept. 30 this year, CEO Brian Roberts said Wednesday.

The company is moving up the sale date from January 2024 to Sept. 30, Roberts said at the Goldman Sachs Communacopia + Technology Conference.

"As of September 30, after some short period of time Disney can call, we can put, and I believe that’s what will end up happening," Roberts said.
