Hulu’s live TV streaming service is adding 14 ViacomCBS networks to its channel lineup.
ViacomCBS announced the agreement with Hulu in a January 4 news release. Here are the networks that will soon be added to the Hulu + Live TV service:
- Comedy Central
- Paramount Network
- Nick Jr.
- TV Land
- BET Her
- MTV Classic
In addition, Hulu Live will continue to carry CBS broadcast stations, CBS Sports Network, Pop TV, Smithsonian Channel and The CW. Plus, Showtime will still be offered as a premium service.
As of this writing, the channels aren’t available yet, and Hulu did not provide me with an exact date when they will be.
Hulu Live subscribers recently endured another price hike. The service increased its starting price from $55 to $65 in December 2020.
When the price hike was announced, Hulu did not indicate that these ViacomCBS networks would be added.
Once these channels are added, Hulu + Live TV’s channel lineup will look more like what you get with YouTube TV. However, YouTube TV offers a better DVR and an additional stream with its base plan.
