Hulu's Live TV Will Start Streaming This May, Find Out More About The Service
Hulu's Live TV streaming service will finally be available this May. People were torn apart as to when exactly in May will the service launch but sources have confirmed that it is definitely coming next month.
According to Tech Crunch, Hulu told its staff that the Live TV service will launch during the first week of May. This is after Hulu announced to the rest of the world that a spring launch is being targeted. Despite these two announcements, Hulu employees have heard and many of them believe that the Live TV will come around mid-May.
The Live TV service will likely cost $39.99 a month, as reported by International Business Times. The monthly plan comes with ads as well as access to the company's on-demand library as well as the broadcast network's on-demand content. The plan will also provide Hulu Originals and live network broadcasts to subscribers. Hulu CEO Mike Hopkin's initially shared that the company intends to keep the monthly fee below $40. While the $39.99 price tag is definitely below $40, albeit by only one cent, some quarters believe that the price may still go down. The same pundits think that a price higher than $40 is out of the question mainly because of the below $40 promise and the fierce TV streaming market.
Hulu is supposedly also working on another bundle that would cost less than $20. This bundle will likely feature unlimited streams as well as a cloud DVR.
A beta test for the Hulu Live TV is seen as one of the reasons why the company cannot pinpoint a specific date for its launch just yet. Hulu is apparently still waiting for the feedback on the beta test and to see f there are issues or bugs that need fixing before going full throttle.
Hulu's Live TV service will be competing against other streaming services such as DirecTV NOW, PlayStation Vue, Sling TV, and YouTube TV. Hulu has already signed deals with a number of broadcasting networks, sports networks, and cable TV stations to make it competitive against its rivals. Fans will have to wait until May if Hulu's Live TV will be at par with the other streaming services.
