Disney launches Star as Ten turbocharges streaming service

Ten was plucked from the boneyard by CBS two years ago. Now we know that its US owners will connect it to streaming. But Disney gets more powerful as well.

As part of that deal, Disney also took majority ownership of Hulu, which has cred as a classy source of more challenging programs. In the US it is already bundled with Disney, while its titles have been bought separately by Australian suppliers. 

Star will be the new home of Hulu here and will slowly absorb all the titles as they become available. 

Netflix will be expecting all this and watching its own figures keenly.
