    Disney And Sony Reach Windows Deal That Can Sling ‘Spider-Man’ To Disney+ For First Time, Along With Reach Across Hulu, ABC, FX & More - Deadline
    • Pay-2 window output deal renewed by FX
    • Sony's Spider-Man films Pay-2 rights now licensed to Disney. These films could head to Disney+ except any R-rated ones (like Venom) could go to Hulu.
    • Theatrical releases from 2022 to 2026 will move to Disney (either D+, Hulu and/or TV Everywhere) after their runs on Netflix
    • Library rights to franchises like Spider-Man, Jumanji, Hotel Transylvania and others are part of the package.
    • The official announcement said the deal “gives Disney enormous programming potential across its platforms and makes them key destinations for a robust collection of Spider-Man films.” Hulu will also get a “significant number” of library titles beginning as early as June.
    • Linear networks joining the new deal include ABC, Disney Channels, Freeform, FX and National Geographic. FX and Sony had been in business for years and the overall Disney agreement succeeds a prior “post-pay-1” deal with FX. Universal, another key supplier to FX, recently ended its long-term relationship with FX, so the ongoing supply of Sony titles is a boost for the widely distributed pay-TV network.
