So Netflix is betting $8B on show this year? Hulu says I see your $8B and raise you $20B

[CEO Randy] Freer’s comments come at a high-profile moment for Hulu. The service is riding high in some respects. Its dystopian series “The Handmaid’s Tale” was the first show from a streaming service to win a best drama Emmy, and it began streaming live TV channels last year. But its direction is foggy in the year to come. Comcast, which has been a silent partner in Hulu for the last seven years, starts to have a say in Hulu’s strategy late in 2018. Soon after that, Disney’s massive deal last month to buy Fox would give it majority ownership over the streaming service. – Joan E. Solsman, CNET
