This week Hulu announced some details about their success during the World Cup. One of the most interesting notes was that daily sign-ups to Hulu’s live TV streaming service went up 50% during the World Cup, compared to the 90 days prior. This is according to a statement sent to Cord Cutters News from Hulu.
