Hulu Opens Up Customer Service Site In Texas

Los Angeles-based streaming television- and video-provider Hulu has selected San Antonio, Texas, as the site for a new customer service center, the company said on Thursday. Hulu said it will hire 300 people by the end of 2017, and another 200 in 2018, as part of the new "viewer experience headquarters" in Texas. Silicon Beach companies appear to be been using Texas as a convenient, low cost area for their customer service operations: this week, Santa Monica-based TaskUs also said it is opening up a customer support site in Texas, and Snapchat also has operations there. Honest Company briefly had a large staff doing customer support in Austin, but it closed that office in December after a shift in its business strategy.
