Because of the nature of Hulu being locked to the United States, over the years we’ve seen numerous so-called Hulu Originals eventually land on Netflix whether that be simply licensed for a fixed period of time or in some cases, as a Netflix Original. Below, we’ll compile a list of those Hulu Originals that have made their way onto Netflix in some form around the world.
We’re going to split this up into two categories. Hulu Originals that are also Netflix Originals and Hulu Originals that have simply been licensed. The key difference here is that Netflix likely won’t hold onto the licensed titles as long as those they’ve got as Netflix Original.
Although we can’t be 100% sure, we’re expecting this phenomenon to slowly stop over time. That’s because Disney now has its own service to put its movies onto. We’ve already seen that with a number of Hulu Originals that get added to Netflix
