Hulu has been busy working on building a Sling TV competitor, and it looks like they are getting closer to making the service a reality.
In a recent presentation to Hulu investors Moffett Nathanson analyst Michael Nathanson told Hulu investors about their new live TV streaming service.
“We think that with the backing of Disney and Fox and the tag-along prospects of NBCU, you’ve got three of the four broadcast networks lined up,” Nathanson said. Cable channels operated by these conglomerates, such as ESPN, USA Network, Bravo, FX, and Fox News, will also be part of the bundle as will various regional sports networks.
Nathanson went on to say that the wholesale price of Hulu’s bundle will be around $34 a month.
When the prospect of an à la carte-type package from Hulu was brought up Nathanson said, “There’s no way Fox or Disney would launch and let Hulu cherry pick their bundle.”
That really should not be a surprise to anyone right now as content owners want to protect the cash cow that is bundled TV channels.
What may be surprising here is that Hulu, YouTube, Dish, and even smaller fiber networks have been able to do something that Apple TV was unable to achieve… An online streaming service for cord cutters.
