A few months back Hulu confirmed that it was developing its own standalone online TV streaming service. Well, now Hulu has announced the official launch of its online TV streaming service. It is called “Hulu With Live TV”.
In fact,Hulu With Live TV has been launched in beta already. It gives access to live streams of more than 50 channels for $39.99 per month. The list of available channels include NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, ESPN, CNN, USA Network, and many more. This might help cord cutters.
Hulu has signed an agreement with Scripps Network Interactive to bring channels like Food Network, HGTV, and Travel Channel to its streaming service and on-demand service as well. CEO Mike Hopkins says that Hulu With Live TV is more than just a standalone TV streaming service. It’s a new way of consuming content since it brings together its library of on-demand streaming content with some of the best networks and channels around. This should help it compete with the likes of Amazon and Netflix.
Subscribers will be able to create six individual profiles and view two streams simultaneously. You also get 50 hours of DVR storage and more can be purchased for $14.99 per month. Unlimited simultaneous streams are an additional $14.99 per month. Hulu’s live TV service is rolling out for Xbox One, Apple TV, Android, iOS, and Chromecast. It will also land on Samsung smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Sticks, and Roku soon.
