A few months ago, we told you about how HULU was throwing their hat in the ring to compete in the online TV streaming game and things seem to be coming together for the company. It truly sounds like they have something that will rival the likes of Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and DirecTV Now. And give them some heavy competition.
This weekend at CES, HULU gave folks a preview of what they have on the way with their service. Their all-new live TV experienced will be priced at under $40, a reasonable price compared to the other services, especially for what it is offering. That price will include live TV, two simultaneous streams, a cloud DVR feature, and the on-demand TV shows/movies that subscribers already have.
Apparently, the service user experience is seamless and built more simpler than the current one and will be customized for your specific tastes.
Plus, the channel lineup looks solid as well. HULU signed a deal with CBS, so it will carry the channel at launch and have already cemented negotiations with FOX, ABC and Disney so you will see the likes of ESPN, Fox Sports, TNT, TBS, National Geographic, FX, Adult Swim, CNN, Cartoon Network, and more. If it can finalize the deal with NBC, it will look like HULU will be a strong player in the arena.
