SAN ANTONIO – Video-streaming giant Hulu is coming to San Antonio.

The California-based company is opening a new service center in the Alamo City.

U.S. Rep. Will Hurd issued the following statement:

Hulu coming to San Antonio is a testament to the hard work of the City and County leaders to attract high-paying jobs to the tech community. Hulu realized what we’ve known all along -- San Antonio is a powerhouse of innovation and creativity. This is great news for our community and economy, and I look forward to welcoming Hulu to the Alamo City.
