Bottom line: Is Hulu + Live TV good?
Hulu + Live TV is a very good value. That’s why we’ve named it our choice for Best Value among live TV streaming services.
You probably already know Hulu—it’s the on-demand service where you stream TV shows the day after they air or watch originals like Shrill and The Handmaid’s Tale.
But you may not know the live version, the service’s bid to woo you away from cable and satellite. And at a base price of $54.99 a month, Hulu + Live TV has some serious woo.
We were already fans of Hulu’s growing slate of original series, including recent gems like Palm Springs and Ramy. Hulu + Live TV sweetens the deal by giving us one less reason to click out of the app to watch a livestreaming channel.
But, Hulu + Live TV doesn’t carry several of our favorite entertainment and sports networks, and availability of local channels is spotty from city to city.
