Hulu Launches Live TV Service

The day has come: Hulu has launched its Hulu with Live TV streaming service. The new offering starts at $40 per month and includes around 50 channels.

The new live TV offering will stand alongside Hulu’s existing streaming choices, and features programming from the four major networks: ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox. In addition, the service features cable channels such as ESPN, CNN, Fox News, TBS, TNT and Disney Channel.

Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins said the following about the new service:

“Hulu can now be a viewer’s primary source of television . . . It’s a natural extension of our business, and an exciting new chapter for Hulu.”

Is Hulu’s new service going to attract cord-cutters, Insiders, or is it too similar in cost and structure to traditional cable?

    We need a good streaming service that doesn’t require cable tv or the Internet for us digital aerial tv viewers.
    Hopefully this is what HULU is talking about?
    I get lost with new tech.

    Nevermind, just read it requires some kind of web service. Might as well just pay for web and sling it to my tv.
