Hulu Breaks Records with Election Night 2020




, ,

Election Night, November 3, broke records on Hulu as it became the most watched event ever on the streaming service, with over 65% of Hulu with Live subscribers tuning in to watch coverage.

Hulu offered all subscribers options for getting election night coverage. On demand only subscribers could tune in to ABC News Live at no additional cost. Live TV subscribers had several options including CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News, all included in the Hulu with Live TV package. Today, Hulu reported that 70% of Hulu’s total Election Night viewers were Hulu + Live TV subscribers and 30% were viewers with basic Hulu and Hulu (No Ads) plans.

As election coverage has continued, Hulu saw nearly 5 million subscribers tuning in to live news coverage throughout last week, and an average watch time of over 7 hours. Hulu says that viewers in Georgia and Pennsylvania, two of the key battleground states, watched even more, at an average of nearly 8 hours.

When viewers weren’t glued to election coverage, Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, and the new season of The Bachelorette were popular titles to distract from politics.
