Hulu launches live TV streaming service

While it offers the same number of viewer profiles as YouTube TV, Hulu's service is subpar in the other two ways.

The app, which starts at $40 per month, grants access to more than 50 channels and marks the latest step toward a future where consumers can view live cable and broadcast shows from their smartphones, tablets and other Internet-connected devices.

As for channels, Hulu offers a wide selection from most major players for the $40 fee. The service includes ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC broadcast networks (local affiliates are available on some markets), along with Cartoon Network, CNN, ESPN, FX, TBS, USA, and other cable networks.

That means Hulu's paid TV bundle is one of the more comprehensive packages on the market.

Trump also wants to impose a 20 percent tax on Mexican imports and use the proceeds to build the wall on the border with Mexico. At the 100-day mark, polls show that Trump's supporters during the campaign remain largely in his corner.

If you have a little extra money, you can get up to 200 hours of Cloud DVR storage for the live TV service for the add-on price of $14.99 per month, which also lets users record as many shows as they want to at the same time, and lets them fast forward through commercials. Hulu also offers an upgrade for unlimited in-home screens and a Cloud DVR storage. Showtime can also be added for another $8.99.

Hulu will soon see if its long-awaited live-television streaming service can stand out in the growing crowd of online live-TV options and help the streaming platform better compete against larger rivals like Netflix. The company announced a new deal, with Scripps Networks Interactive, as it launched its live TV service Wednesday. The new app also comes with a bunch of personalization tools, various options for sports fans, a kids mode, and more. With no set-up costs or installation, it features an easy-to-use, intuitive and personalized interface, that brings together live and on-demand news, entertainment and sports, all in one place, across hundreds of living room and mobile devices.

50 hours of recording storage to watch shows whenever you want. It's now available on Android, iOS, Xbox One, and Chromecast. Earlier this year we got some more details on what that service might entail and how it would work for current Hulu subscribers. In May 2016, Hulu said it had 30 million unique viewers.

New subscribers can sign in on any device and start watching live TV immediately, and existing subscribers can sign in and import their Watchlist so they can access that content and live TV streams side by side. HBO is also unavailable on Hulu with Live TV; separately, HBO said Wednesday that it will be pulling its content from Amazon Prime Video when the deal between the two companies expires in 2018. But neither Sling TV, Playstation Vue, DirecTV Now, nor YouTube TV can offer the all-encompassing experience that Hulu can for those who stream a lot of on-demand video but want live TV as well.
