Cord cutters are going to love this news. Hulu is reportedly working on a new live TV platform. The Wall Street Journal thinks that Hulu has ambitions to go up against both domestic cable providers as well as Sling TV and PlayStation Vue.
They won’t try to broadcast every channel in existence, but will instead focus on quality over quantity. Remember, Hulu is partly owned by Disney and 20th Century Fox, so you can assume that ABC, ESPN and Fox will be the main channels of the new platform.
Hulu will also allow customers to record their own shows in the cloud, rather than on a DVR. The expected price is around $40 a month and may launch at the start of 2017. This will be yet another streaming provider that wants your cable subscription dollars. Between this, Netflix, Amazon, HBO Now, Seeso, CBS All Access, Starz, FilmStruck and YouTube Red, you have more than enough choices for great content if you want to be free of cable companies. Like Netflix, Hulu has it’s own original content too, so subscribers are going to be pretty happy about this. It’s all in the early stages, so we will just have to wait and see what happens.
