Yesterday Cord Cutters News started to receive word that Hulu has added more local channels. It seems Tribune owned local FOX channels have been added to the service.
Hulu has yet to confirm the new channels but we have heard from multiple readers that confirmed the addition of new channels. This addition of these new locals would make Hulu the streaming service with the most local channels. Beating out Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and DIRECTV NOW when looking at local channels. (Note this is based on the last known number of local channels from each service.)
Update #1 It seems PlayStation Vue may have more locals but Sony has not released an official list. According to a fan list PlayStation Vue has about 90+ local channels.
Update #2 Hulu has sent Cord Cutters News the full list of FOX affiliates they added. Here is the official list:
Partner Channel Type Channel Name DMA FOX Owner Fox Affiliate KSTU Salt Lake City Tribune Fox Affiliate KSWB San Diego Tribune Fox Affiliate KTVI St. Louis Tribune Fox Affiliate WDAF Kansas City Tribune Fox Affiliate WPMT Harrisburg-Lncstr-Leb-York Tribune Fox Affiliate WXIN Indianapolis Tribune Fox Affiliate WXMI Grand Rapids-Kalmzoo-B.Crk Tribune
