What to Expect from Hulu + Live TV
Earlier this year, Hulu added a much-requested feature: unlimited DVR storage. Now you no longer have to worry about running out of space when you record your favorite shows and movies.
Combined with the inclusion of a regular Hulu subscription, Disney+, and ESPN+, a Hulu + Live TV subscription gives you a massive library of on-demand content that now also includes 85+ live channels.
When it comes to features and content available, Hulu + Live TV rivals the best live TV streaming services out there like YouTube TV, Sling, and fuboTV.
But with this content comes a price- one that happens to be going up. As previously reported, the pricing structure for Hulu + Live TV will change in December alongside the price hike for Disney+.
Currently there are two plans for Hulu + Live TV: one that includes Hulu w/ Ads for $69.99/mo and one without ads on Hulu for $75.99/mo.
Beginning on December 8th, existing customers on the Hulu w/ ads tier can keep their plan for $74.99/mo or switch to a new plan (called the “Basic” plan) that includes ads on both Hulu and Disney+ for $69.99/mo. The higher-priced plan without ads on either Hulu or Disney+ (that will now be called the “Premium” plan) will go up to $82.99 a month.
Considering the upcoming price increase, the inclusion of new channels is a welcome addition for Hulu + Live TV. Hallmark Channel fans will especially find the inclusion a plus during the holiday season.
