Catch 22 is Hulu’s latest biggest series and subsequently won’t be coming to Netflix in the US. Hulu doesn’t operate everywhere in the world so let’s take a look at its plans internationally and see whether Netflix is on the streaming agenda.

The series will be available on Stan in Australia. Stan also offers a streaming option.
