The company offered no further details, but said it chose Japan for its first international expansion because Japanese audiences are "passionate about premium video content" and because Japan is a "major producer of world-class TV and feature films."

The company added that Japan is a particularly attractive market for delivering video over the Internet because of its extensive broadband penetration and the ubiquitous presence of Internet-connected mobile devices.

Hulu is owned by The Walt Disney Co., News Corp., Comcast Corp. and Providence Equity Partners.
