Hulu’s own service, ‘Hulu live’ was introduced a few months back so as to satisfy the demands of the users. Alike other live TV services, Hulu is also offering its best to the users. The only thing required is a valid subscription of Hulu on the device.

The streaming services these days are in a trend due to cut in the cost of a cable subscription. In normal cable connection, the user has to pay the monthly charges for a fixed number of channels but this is not the case in streaming service. You have to pay according to the number of channels you have subscribed.

This is why streaming services are offering best-in-class services to their users. They are bringing in the whole TV market with their best and latest offers. Hulu started its live TV service for $40 per month. In this service, it is offering more than 50 channels to the users.

If you are a newbie to Live TV service, then you must try at least once. The Hulu is offering 7 days free trial to new customers. You can grab this offer on your device and if you want to extend after the trial days, then you can continue by paying $40 a month. In this Live TV service, you will get MSNBC, NBC, Fox News, CNN and etc. besides this, you will find cartoon network, HGTV, National geography on it. The company is planning to launch its live platform on undiscovered platforms as well.

Hulu is leading player in the Live TV service. Its rivals are also analyzing and examining the market trends in order to bring the same service on their platform. The major opponents are YouTube, HBO, Netflix, and Amazon. In YouTube, you can develop and add a content from your Hulu Com Account. There is a need to create a google account for it.

You can create your own channel on YouTube and add videos from time to time. If you want to subscribe to other channels, then you can subscribe by pressing on subscribe button. The main difference in Hulu and YouTube is the ‘Space’ allocated for storing the content. In YouTube, you will get unlimited storage space for saving the videos but in Hulu, there is limited space available. You can store only 50 hours of show in Hulu. If you want to increase storage, you have to pay extra.

There is a number of exciting features available in Hulu Live which you won’t find in any other streaming service. The best among them is ‘Ability to watch on smartphone’.

The only requirement is ‘Stable internet connection’. If your mobile has good internet speed and stable connection, then you can enjoy ‘Live streaming of Hulu’ on it. If you find there is speed or data restriction on data pack, then you can connect the home wireless network to the mobile. This will enable you to watch quality content on mobile. For HD streaming, you need an unlimited data plan because it squeezes more data in streaming the content than normal streaming.

So at last, I recommend you to try Hulu live on Smartphone at least once. If you find the content enjoyable and useful, then you can take the monthly plan of the same.

Hulu is among the most popular streaming channels in the world today. When it comes to content that is available on Hulu, you are going to find a perfect balance between quantity and quality. You will find content from various niches and backgrounds, which is truly amazing because only a couple of other apps have the same kind of versatility.

Now, Hulu has brought up a new concept, i.e., ‘Live TV’. Though ‘live TV’ in itself is not a new concept as cable operators are providing this service for quite a while now. But, this particular service has been new in Hulu and there are some changes that Hulu has made after going through the same service on other platforms.

Hulu is betting big on this Live TV service because the company believes that there are many top programmes that they have in the offing in this particular section. Well, that can only be confirmed once Hulu users start using the platform.

What exactly Hulu with Live TV is?

Hulu’s ‘Live TV’ service is a special service that will allow users to watch on-demand TV programming and Live TV on their television screens. This particular service can be related to the ones that people are accessing in Sling TV, Direct TV Now and PlayStation Vue. Having this service means that there is no need to subscribe to any cable TV or satellite TV subscription. This ‘Live TV’ service alone is good enough to entertain you in the right way.

Some people have used this ‘Live TV’ service, and they have come out with certain complaints, some of those being related to their own sloppy internet speeds. But, some have complained that at times, there are too many users watching a particular live event, which make things a bit slower. Moreover, some Hulu users have also complained of the bad user-interface of the channel.

Users accessing Hulu’s Live TV feature usually go to beta.hulu.com, but there, they get limited features. If users wish to access Live TV from their computers, then they will have to click a pop-up that comes at the top of their computer screens. If they somehow close that pop-up, then it can only be seen again if they reload the page. Hulu hasn’t finalized a plan to integrate Hulu on the computer, Hulu with Live TV and Hulu on phone or streaming devices. This lack of integration will create a little inconvenience when you are looking to watch a show on your smartphone that you have saved on your PC or vice-versa.

How much do you have to pay for Hulu?
