Due to the nature of Hulu being locked down to the United States, we’ve seen countless so-called Hulu Originals land on Netflix over the years, whether simply licensed for a fixed term or in some cases as a Netflix Original. Below we’ll compile a list of those Hulu Originals that have made their way to Netflix in one form or another around the world.
We’re going to break this down into two categories. Hulu Originals that are also Netflix Originals and Hulu Originals that are just licensed. The main difference here is that Netflix probably won’t keep the licensed titles as long as they have them as Netflix Originals.
While we cannot be 100% sure, we expect this phenomenon to slowly stop over time. That’s because Disney now has its own service to set up its movies. We’ve already seen that with a number of Hulu Originals being added to Netflix
