A few weeks ago it was announced that Hulu is planning a Sling TV-type service to stream live cable channels to cord cutters.
Now Bloombergs Gerry Smith is reporting that Hulus new service will not start at $40 a month as first reported but will be $30 a month and have more channels than Sling TVs $20 package. (They did not say how it will line up against the new PlayStation Vue service.)
Hulu’s cable service expected to cost $30/month and include all channels from Disney, Fox, NBC and Time Warner but exclude Viacom, Citi says

Hulus new service is expected to include channels such as Disney, FOX, and NBC and Time Warner channels such as TBS. Right now we have limited information, and the new Hulu streaming service is not expected to be released until late 2016.
Inverse reported that the new Hulu service may even include Fox News, Fox Business, FOX Sports 1/2 along with all the ESPN channelssome of the most popularly requested channels. Yet we do question how accurate this is as Inverse also listed G4, a channel Comcast shut down some time ago.
The truth is likely that Hulu is still working on locking down deals to channels, because often these deals take some time to lock down.
