Hulu + Live TV channels

Hulu + Live TV features a lineup of live entertainment, sports, news, and kids’ channels that competes easily with a cable or satellite TV package—with a few exceptions. Popular channels AMC, Hallmark, and IFC aren’t on Hulu + Live TV and likely won’t be added anytime soon.

What will be added in 2021 are 14 channels from ViacomCBS: Comedy Central, Paramount Network, TV Land, MTV, MTV2, MTV Classic, VH1, CMT, BET, BET Her, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., Nicktoons, and TeenNick. Hulu + Live TV hasn’t announced a date for these additions yet, or a price hike (as happened with YouTube TV when it had its own ViacomCBS splurge in 2020).

Sports channels on Hulu Live

You’ve probably seen those ever-present “Hulu has live sports!” commercials, and Hulu + Live TV mostly lives up to the hype. With 13 major sports channels, including a suite of ESPN channels and both FS1 and FS2 from FOX, it’s as sports loaded as a basic cable package.

But, Hulu + Live TV is missing sport-specific channels like NFL Network, NBA TV, MLB Network, FOX Soccer Plus, and NHL Network. Also, while Hulu + Live TV carries NBC RSNs (regional sports networks), it recently dropped FOX RSNs, along with YES Network and Marquee Sports Network.

Hulu channel hubs

The on-demand side of Hulu + Live TV Hulu displays a “Hubs” section featuring shows and movies from 50 broadcast and cable channels.

Hulu’s channel hubs don’t include every show or movie on these networks, just those contracted to Hulu for a specific length of time.

For example: Hulu’s HGTV channel hub currently has 29 of 192 (yes, 192) seasons of House Hunters but zero seasons of Yard Crashers.
