Sales and Marketing
Hulu boasts a fast-growing subscriber base of some 38.8 million. To supplement revenue, Hulu's basic packages also have adverts, while its costlier packages are ad-free. Hulu hosts content from 21st Century Fox, The Walt Disney Company, NBCUniversal, CBS Corporation, The CW, Turner Networks, A+E Networks, and Discovery Networks.
In 2019, Hulu's ownership group went down by one when AT&T sold its stake back to Hulu for $1.4 billion. The deal values Hulu at about $15 billion. With its acquisition of Time-Warner content providers such as HBO, AT&T no longer had a place for Hulu in its portfolio. AT&T's exit leaves Disney and Comcast as Hulu's owners.
In mid-2020, Hulu announced the launch of GatewayGo, a new ad experience designed to allow viewers to connect and interact directly with a brand and take action on their second screen — like access personalized offers, while being minimally intrusive to the viewer. SmileDirectClub, The RealReal and Sweetgreen are among its exclusive launch partners for this new experience.
GatewayGo couples traditional living room video ads with new, action-oriented capabilities to facilitate seamless connections between viewers and advertisers — such as receiving more information from a brand.
