Where to watch the Predator movies?

Predator franchise is owned and made by 20th Century Studios (formerly 20th Century Fox). Disney acquired 20th Century Fox in 2019. Disney also owns a majority stake in Hulu, which is where it likes to put its more adult-oriented content that doesn’t fall under the Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, or Marvel brands in the U.S. Internationally, it all just goes on Disney Plus.

The latest film in the series, Prey, go straight to streaming on Hulu as a Hulu original film in the United States and on Disney+ (International), Star+(Latin America) on August 5, 2022.

Prey is certainly a flashier proposition than recent Hulu hits like Nomadland or Palm Springs.

Prey(2022) and Predators(2010) are available on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ Star internationally.

Before it was acquired by Disney, 20th Century Fox had a deal with HBO Max to stream all its theatrical releases there. This deal still applies for any films that originated before the Disney merger.
