"Making our films available via premium digital distribution channels is extremely important to Miramax," said Mike Lang, CEO of Miramax. "As one of the early promoters of Hulu and its CEO Jason Kilar, I couldn’t be more excited than to be in business with them today, and we’re thrilled about the prospect of enhancing both our brands by making our films accessible to Hulu’s fast-growing audience."
