Hulu: What's New in April 2019

With Disney having acquired Fox, Hulu is now majority owned by the "Mouse Company". This won't make much of a difference to Hulu at this stage, but we might see a re-orientation in terms of the type of content Hulu will carry, versus what will be on Disney's own Disney+ platform. For now, let's take a look at what's going to be new on Hulu in April.

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.


Netflix and Disney may no longer like each other, what with Disney launching a competing platform, and Netflix having cancelled all Disney related programming, but Hulu (now majority-owned by Disney) will be the beneficiary in the short term. 'Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger' is the kind of show that used to be on Netflix, and you'll be able to stream season 2 of the show starting on April 5.

Still from Ramy

New show 'Ramy' chronicles the adventures of a first-generation American Muslim as he tries to balance the restrictions of his heritage and the fact that he's also a Millennial. You can stream the complete first season of the show on April 19.

Movies, Documentaries:

Hulu was launched as a TV catch-up service, but now it's about movies as well, and there's a big premiere in April in the form of 'A Quiet Place'. The superb thriller has a bit of horror, sci-fi and plenty of drama thrown in, with real-life husband and wife team of John Krasinski and Emily Blunt doing an excellent job in their first collaboration (The Office's Krasiniski also directed the film). Stream this blockbuster on April 2.

Critics didn't like it much, but audiences did, and so star-studded romantic comedy 'Book Club' (April 21) is probably worth your time.

Still from Eastern Promises

There are a whole bunch of older movies joining Hulu at the beginning of the month, and the ones that I can fully recommend include both of the funny and spooky 'The Addams Family' and 'Addams Family Values'; the film that should have won an award for best naked sauna fight, 'Eastern Promises'; and the tearjerking 'The Time Traveler’s Wife'.

Documentary fans should check out the impressive 'Stories We Tell' (April 1) and the confronting 'We Are Columbine' (2018).

Leaving Hulu:

Some great stuff is leaving Hulu, but luckily, they only leave at the end of the month so you still have some time to catch them before they're gone. The highlights include 'Field of Dreams', 'Marathon Man', 'Thelma & Louise', and 'Wayne’s World'.


So that's April on Hulu. What will you be watching?
