Hulu recognizes that many of its on-demand subscribers may not have access to live, televised news to receive critical information during times of national crisis. Hulu has now taken a step toward keeping subscribers informed and up to date on coronavirus news with a free, live channel.
“Given the rapidly-evolving situation around COVID-19, and to ensure that our viewers can stay informed during this time, we’re partnering with ABC News Live to bring the channel’s 24/7 live coverage to Hulu and Disney billed on-demand subscribers as part of their subscription,” Hulu said in a blog post today.
Beginning today, subscribers to Hulu’s ad-supported and Hulu (No Ads) plans can easily access the ABC News Live stream by visiting the Hulu Picks collection. Selecting the channel will allow users to stream through smart TVs, mobile devices, streaming devices, and popular game consoles.
The stream will be available starting today and will go live to coincide with ABC News Live’s daily program, “Pandemic: What You Need to Know”.
