A Day in the Life by the Morgan Spurlock just got global distribution rights. Los Angeles-based Hulu has inked a deal to distribute its original content to the international market, the firm said Monday, in a deal with FremantleMedia Enterprises. Hulu said the deal calls for FremantleMedia to handle distribution rights to its original content internationally, including distributing the content over traditional media. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. The two said the first title to hit the international markets will be A Day in the Life, the Morgan Spurlock series which has been running on Hulu and Hulu Plus. The online-only series is entering a second season on Hulu.
This is the exact reason HULU, Netflix, Yahoo, are making their own content, to make it much more easy to distribute globally. Perhaps Yahoo can buy a piece of one of the smaller studios and become a Netflix for online web tv only.
