Will A Hidden Life come to Netflix?
Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely that A Hidden Life will come to Netflix. The film will be distributed by Fox Searchlight Pictures, which is owned by The Walt Disney Company.
Walt Disney owns two rival streaming services, and it’s unlikely that they will offer the title to Netflix. You will have to stream A Hidden Life on another platform.
Where can you stream A Hidden Life?
The Walt Disney Company owns both Hulu and Disney+, and A Hidden Life will likely be available on either of those platforms. Disney+ is currently available in the US, Canada, and Holland, while Hulu is only available in the US.
Disney+ is set to only have content that is suitable for family viewing. A Hidden Life is PG-13 rated because it contains violent scenes. Therefore, A Hidden Life will most likely be available on Hulu, which is oriented towards general entertainment.
