Hulu Names Sony Vet Tian Lim CTO

The former svp product engineering at Sony Network Entertainment will scale the online streamer's technology.

Hulu has named Tian Lim its new chief technology officer. 

Most recently Lim was svp product engineering at Sony Network Entertainment. He also previously led development of Xbox Live, Xbox 360 and Kinect at Microsoft. 

"Tian’s depth of experience working on the leading technology platforms and devices in the marketplace, will be invaluable as we scale and, simultaneously, continue to provide the best user experience possible across every platform – living room, mobile and web," Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins wrote in a blog post.

He added that Lim's first day will be March 3.

This is one of Hopkin's biggest hires since he joined Hulu as CEO in October. Last week the online streamer announced that NBC veteran Peter Naylor would join the company as svp sales. Hopkins also hired Disney executive Elaine Paul as CFO in October.
