Hulu has grabbed the expanded streaming rights to NBC blockbuster drama, “This is Us,” in collaboration with 20Th Century Fox.

Earlier this week, NBC and Hulu set a deal about show’s previous and new episodes. A spokesperson claims that all of the episodes will be made available on multiple platforms by the end of this month. 20th Century Fox CEO Dan Walden stated that the aim is to expand the potential audiences and viewership of the show. It is important that people from all parts of the world watch it from the comfort of their houses, which is only possible when the program is made available online so that viewers can enjoy their favorite episodes anytime, anywhere.

‘This is Us’ – an American TV series

“This is Us” is one of the most successful television shows to date. Developed by Dan Fogelman, the show premiered on NBC in September 2016. It features Justin Hartley, Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling Brown, Mandy Moore, Susan Kelechi, Ron Jones and Chrissy Metz. The show focuses on several friends who share the same birthday. They often sit together and talk about their similarities and differences, sharing the day-to-day experiences with each other.

It would not be wrong to say that “This is Us” has received satisfactory reviews from television critics and audiences. The first season won two Golden Globe Awards, four Critics' Choice Awards, and various nominations.

Moore and Metz were nominated for Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress, and Brown won a SAG Award for his incredible performance.

Ratings of the show

On Rotten Tomatoes, “This is Us” has an approved rating of 74% based on 54 reviews.

On Metacritic, the show has an average score of 73 out of 100 based on 36 critics. In January 2016, Entertainment Weekly gave it a rating of B, naming it one of the most amazing and entertaining television programs of all time.

With the passage of time, Hulu has expanded its network to major countries of the world. Its official website receives over three million unique views on a daily basis.

It is one of the biggest on-demand services, a joint venture of Walt Disney Company, Fox Entertainment, Time Warner, and Comcast. Hulu primarily focuses on the production of original television shows, short films, and documentaries.

In December 2016, it began a campaign with a commercial starring Alec Baldwin to promote its upcoming shows. Commercials have since aired featuring Seth MacFarlane, Will Arnett, Denis Leary, and Eliza Dushku.
