Bottom line: Is Hulu + Live TV good?
Considering all you get, Hulu + Live TV is a pretty sweet deal. 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 Palm Springs and The Handmaid’s Tale.
But you may not have tried out the live version, the service’s bid to woo you away from cable and satellite. And at a base price of $64.99 a month, Hulu + Live TV has some serious woo.
We were already fans of Hulu’s growing slate of original series, including gems like Shrill, Woke, 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.
