New Details on Hulu’s Sling TV Like Streaming Service




Hulu_logoA few weeks ago it was announced that Hulu is planning a Sling TV-type service to stream live cable channels to cord cutters.

Now Bloomberg’s Gerry Smith is reporting that Hulu’s new service will not start at $40 a month as first reported but will be $30 a month and have more channels than Sling TV’s $20 package. (They did not say how it will line up against the new PlayStation Vue service.)

Hulu’s 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 channels—some 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.
