Cheddar Afternoon Business Report 10/09: Walmart returns, Hulu reruns & football

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Walmart is making it easier to return items as it continues to battle Amazon for business.

The retailer is launching a "Mobile Express Returns" feature on its app. Shoppers get a transaction code, walk into a store and drop off their item for an immediate refund.

And Hulu beat out rival Netflix for streaming rights to reruns of the NBC hit drama "This Is Us." It cost $3.5 million per episode.

Hulu recently announced it expanded its deal to stream episodes from older shows like "Glee" and "How I Met Your Mother."

And Disney is giving "Star Wars" fans another reason to watch "Monday Night Football." The newest trailer for "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" will debut on ESPN during halftime of tonight's game. Disney owns both Lucasfilm, which produces the "Star Wars" films, and ESPN.

Tickets for the latest "Star Wars" installment go on sale after the game. The movie hits theaters on Dec. 15.
