Sonic Boom will be made available for streaming in the US as a Hulu exclusive later this month. This will put an end to the show’s strange absence from digital services, which has made it notoriously difficult to watch legally for anyone who doesn’t want to watch the show on TV.
This comes just a week after Aaron Webber announced that SEGA would begin pursuing takedowns of uploaded episodes on YouTube. Hulu’s exclusivity deal, which was revealed earlier this year, specifically covers the show’s SVOD (subscription video on demand) rights in the US, meaning that American Netflix subscribers are out of luck. It is currently unknown how this exclusivity will effect non-subscription video on demand services like iTunes. The show’s entire first season will be available in both English and Spanish. Anyone who wants to watch these episodes will need a Hulu subscription, which starts at $8 a month.
Sonic Boom will be returning with a new season this fall.
