Hulu launches beta of live TV service for $40 per month

04 May 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

Rumors had swirled for some time and it is official. Hulu has launched ‘Hulu With Live TV’ in a beta version with 50 channels for $40 per month.

Hulu live TV service

Hulu’s new live TV service can be considered an alternative to Sony’s PlayStation Vue, Google’s YouTube TV, and other streaming services that offer live channels. It is targeted at those users who want to stay in the flow TV experience but at the same time want the flexibility that streaming offers.

Hulu has made the live TV service available on a number of devices, including Apple TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, iOS, and Android. Broader platform support will follow in the near future, the company said. Some of the future devices include Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung Smart TV, and PC/Mac.

Channels include ABC, CBS, CNN, Cartoon Network, various Disney channels, Food Network, Fox, HGTV, NBC, ESPN, FX, Travel Channel, USA Network, and many others. Subscribers will also gain access to local channels.

The service includes a ‘cloud DVR’ that lets you “record” (or store) 50 hours of program in a cloud locker. More storage is sold as an add-on along with other features such as the option to use the service on unlimited screens at home (up to 3 on the go). The standard plan allows you to watch on 2 screens at a time.

With the service you will also get access to the Hulu streaming library, although with “limited commercials”.

Hulu With Live TV is available in beta with a free trial on hulu.com.
