Beatles ‘Hard Day’s Night’ to Stream Exclusively on Hulu Plus

The Beatles’ classic 1964 film “A Hard Day’s Night” will be available for streaming starting Friday, Aug. 8, exclusively on Hulu’s subscription-video service.

Hulu has exclusive U.S. streaming rights to the pic under its recently renewed licensing agreement with the Criterion Collection. A selection of the distributor’s 800-plus arthouse films are available exclusively to subscribers of Hulu Plus, priced at $7.99 per month.

“Hard Day’s Night” stars John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, with Wilfrid Brambell portraying McCartney’s grandfather. The comedic romp takes a satirical look at several days in the lives of the Fab Four and features eight Beatles songs, including “Can’t Buy Me Love” and title track “A Hard Day’s Night.” It’s available to Hulu Plus subscribers here, as well as on mobile devices and connected-TV platforms.

The movie last month was released theatrically in 50 U.S. cities, after it was digitally restored in 4K resolution from the original camera negative by Criterion Collection’s restoration team and approved by director Richard Lester. In addition, the soundtrack was remixed and remastered by producer Giles Martin at Abbey Road Studios.

Hulu, the joint venture of 21st Century Fox, Disney and NBCUniversal has been steadily adding exclusive content to the service. The company recently cut a three-year deal bringing all past seasons of “South Park” to Hulu Plus starting this fall.
