Hulu and Hulu + Live TV channels and shows
On-demand shows and movies
Before it began producing its own original series and movies, Hulu was best known as a destination to watch TV classics and new network shows after episodes aired on regular television (the dawn of cord-cutting, in other words).
This still applies today—you can see new episodes of ABC, NBC, and Fox series on Hulu soon after they air. CBS and The CW aren’t as available through Hulu as they once were, though, thanks to CBS All Access and The CW’s free streaming app.
Shows from Comedy Central, Adult Swim, and other cable networks turn up post-broadcast on Hulu, as do many recent theatrical release movies.
Worth noting: Hulu + Live TV plans don’t livestream several popular channels, including AMC, Hallmark, WEtv, and IFC. An additional app like Philo can help fill the channel gaps if you’re willing to spend a little more on live TV streaming.
