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?
There is a free version of Hulu available on the market, but if you get this, then you can only access a limited number of movies and TV shows. Hulu has changed a few its services such as, the ad-supported services, which is not available now. Moreover, the company is now associated with Yahoo! Hulu has many shows that it shows for free, and now that content can be watched at Yahoo! View. If you are interested, then you can watch five latest episodes of a top-rated series along with all-new episodes that are going to be added 8 days after they are aired on Hulu.
