That puts Hulu close to the last reported PlayStation Vue numbers of about 400,000. (The PlayStation Vue numbers are over 6 months old and again came from sources familiar with the situation.)

DIRECTV NOW recently hit their one year anniversary by hitting 1 million live TV subscribers putting them well ahead of many of their competitors but still well behind Sling TV. According to reports Sling TV recently topped 2 million subscribers on the high end well others say Sling TV has about 1.68 million on the low end. (Sling TV does not disclose subscriber numbers.) There is a growing list of live TV streaming services including fuboTV who recently announced they have topped 100,000 subscribers.
