Hulu has just announced some big plans that might be enough to convert even the most loyal Netflix and Amazon Prime Video users into Hulu-gans. In 2017, Hulu will begin live streaming TV shows to its subscribers. This is big news because right now, Hulu is the only streaming service that offers users the option to watch some TV episodes just 24 hours after they first air, so they're even beating their own waiting period.
CEO Mike Hopkins confirmed to the Wall Street Journal that major television broadcasts such as Fox, ABC, ESPN, FX, and the Disney Channel are all involved in this plan, so we're excited, to say the least. However, details of which series subscribers can watch live have not been released, but we have our fingers crossed that they will be some of our favorite shows.
Hulu has seemed to be trailing behind Netflix and Amazon Prime because of their small library and a shortage of original movies and TV shows, but we're thinking this could be what brings them to the top. What do you want to see live streaming on Hulu next year? If you have a cable TV provider, will you cut that service? Let us know in the comments below!
