Hulu: What's New in July 2018

With more movies and classic TV shows being added, Hulu has positioned themselves as a serious alternative to Netflix, and not just a catch-up service for the latest TV shows. It's a new month and so it's time again to take a look at what's going to be happening on Hulu for the month of July.

To watch Hulu here in Australia, you'll need a geo-unblocking service, which also allows you to access all the latest TV shows and movies on Hulu. There are many geo-unblocking services, but with increased scrutiny, we can only recommend one particular service, and you can read about it all here. The same subscription also allows you to sign up to and watch US Netflix, and dozens of other streaming services from around the world.

It can't be denied that, at its heart, Hulu is still more about TV, and like most streaming services these days, the push to create good original content is seen as a priority. Hulu has already achieved that with 'The Handmaid's Tale', and it's trying again with 'Castle Rock', premiering on July 25. A series produced by none other than J. J. Abrams, it delves right into the universe created by author Stephen King, this psychological horror series has been eagerly anticipated by King fans. And if the name of the series sounds familiar to you, then it's because it's the fictional town that has become the setting for several of King's hits, including 'Cujo', 'The Dead Zone', and also referenced in 'Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption', 'Under the Dome' and 'The Body', the latter of which was adapted into the film 'Stand By Me'. And the production company that formed after the success of that film was named, you guessed it, Castle Rock Entertainment (which also adapted other Stephen King novels into film, including 'Misery', 'The Shawshank Redemption' and 'The Green Mile'). Something for the trivia fans.

Apart from that, there are actually tons of new TV seasons coming to Hulu, and to highlight just a few, we have 'UnREAL' season 3 coming on July 2 and 'The Last Ship' season 4 coming on July 20.

Hulu has been aggressively addressing its main weakness from before, and that's their movie library. Once just an afterthought, it now rivals and maybe even beats many of its rivals. Again, there are too many highlights to mention, but for royal enthusiasts, many newly minted members thanks to Netflix's 'The Crown', 'Victoria & Abdul' (July 28) tells a part of history that's both interesting and controversial (at that time, at least).

You either hate or love Woody Allen movies, and that's probably true again for 'Midnight in Paris' (July 1). Even if you hate his films, you still have to admire the craftsmanship and nuance that goes into the making of them.

And in the list of "movies that I really should watched", 'A.I. Artificial Intelligence', 'American Psycho', 'Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure', 'Dead Man Walking', 'Election', 'Pretty in Pink', and 'This is Spinal Tap' all arrive on July 1.

As usual, some great stuff will be leaving Hulu at the end of the month, including the just arrived 'Braveheart', 'Steel Magnolias' and 'Traffic'.

Here's a complete list of new content coming to Hulu in July (note that it does not include continuing series, just new content and premiers, and does not include content that comes with additional subscriptions to HBO and Showtime).
