More Information on Hulu + Live TV
If this announcement has you considering a new subscription to Hulu’s live TV streaming service, we have all of the information you need to help make your decision.
But what you may not know is that the company also has a live TV streaming service, called Hulu + Live TV, and it offers many of the most popular TV channels on the market.
The “plus” in the name means you’ll get both services for one price. So you’ll enjoy popular TV channels in addition to the on-demand library from Hulu that includes popular original content such as The Handmaid’s Tale.
And unlike cable or satellite, this comes without cable box fees, a dish or a long-term commitment. You can cancel at any time.
“What makes Hulu + Live TV interesting to me is that it’s a combo of Hulu on-demand programming and Hulu Live, which is basically like traditional pay TV,” money expert Clark Howard says.
Disney+ and ESPN+ Are Included
Disney+ is one of the more popular family-oriented video streaming services, thanks to a content library that includes both legacy classics and new originals from brands like Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, Disney and National Geographic.
ESPN+ offers live streams of select MLB, NHL, PGA and NCAA sporting events. It also has a robust on-demand library of sports-related content.

Hulu and partner Disney+ have been in the headlines in recent months because of price hike announcements.
So it’s nice to get some good news coming before the December price increase.
If you’re a holiday movies fan, getting the Hallmark channels on this streaming service may entice you to ditch your subscriptions to value services such as Frndly TV or Philo in search of a more complete streaming experience with Hulu.
