Hulu is an online TV service, a joint-venture of NBC Universal, 21st Century Fox, and The Walt Disney Company, offering streaming video of television shows and movies to the US public. The vast majority of its programming comes from US broadcast and cable networks, although original programming, under the Hulu Presents title, is growing.
