Hulu announced on Friday that it has locked in an agreement with A+E to provide even more content for its forthcoming live streaming TV service. That means channels such as History, A&E, Lifetime, LMN, FYI and Viceland will all be included in the company’s new sub-$40 streaming service.
“As we begin to finalize our new live TV service, we’re pulling together the most valuable, well-rounded package of channels available for under $40,” said Mike Hopkins, CEO of Hulu. “We know the A+E Networks brand of award-winning storytelling is important to our viewers, and we’re very excited to add their networks to the core service we launch this Spring.”
Hulu TV looks very promising
We had a chance to check out Hulu TV during CES 2017 and were blown away by how convenient and fresh it was. The user interface highlights shows you like and that it thinks you’ll like, instead of providing a more traditional (boring!) cable network guide of channels. Hulu hasn’t said when the new service will launch, only now saying that it’s coming sometime this spring. We also don’t know what sort of content will be available on different pricing tiers, if there are any.
Hulu’s existing partners include CBS Corporation, 21st Century Fox and The Walt Disney Company, which should provide plenty of content from your favorite channels.
