  • The Hulu Live TV channel list includes as many as 69 channels covering entertainment, news, and sports.
  • Hulu Live TV is a streaming solution allowing you to get, as Hulu puts it, “all your TV in one place.”
  • Bundle Hulu with ESPN+ and Disney+ for one of the best deals in streaming … especially when you bring live into the mix.
  • Hulu Live TV costs start at $54.99 a month.
  • Try Hulu Live TV free for 7 days.

Cutting the cord doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to live television. If you’re shopping for a streaming service that’s contract-free, Hulu Live TV costs are low enough that you don’t have to settle for catching your favorite shows weeks later.

In addition to the standard library of on-demand Hulu originals, shows, and movies, Hulu Live TV includes, well, live channels. So you don’t have to avoid social media the night your favorite show comes on and you can actually catch the game live.

Of course, whether it’s right for you depends on the live channels.

What channels are on Hulu Live TV? See below for packages, pricing, and whether the streaming service carries your preferred networks.

How much does Hulu Live TV cost?

Hulu Live TV costs start at $54.99/month.  The basic package comes with nearly 70 channels and the full Hulu library, including brief ad interruptions. You can upgrade to no ads on Hulu’s on-demand content for $60.99/month, however, you will still find ads on the live channels. (Networks gonna network.)

If that’s not enough entertainment options for you, there are standard channel add-ons that cost $7.99 extra per month. Then, premium add-ons like HBO, Starz, and Showtime are also available, which are priced upwards of $8.99 extra.

You can stream up to two devices simultaneously with the basic Hulu Live TV package, or get unlimited screens for an additional $9.99 a month.

Hulu Live TV channels

Hulu Live TV offers as many as 69 channels in one easy-to-use plan. The exact number of channels depends on what market you’re in and which local channels you can access.

If you’re a sports fan, you’ll get your fill with the Hulu Live TV channel lineup. You get a suite of ESPN channels, along with FS1 and FS2, NBC’s Golf Channel, and two college sports networks, Big Ten Network, SEC Network.

Hulu Live TV local channels

All of the major live TV streaming options now offer local channels in most major cities, but what you’re able to watch varies by location. Thankfully, there’s an easy way to find out what your package would look like. Just type in your ZIP code when prompted here.

One thing that puts Hulu above its competitors is the wide range of ABC availability. Since it is owned by Disney, it’s unsurprising that ABC is available in more than 140 markets. So if you’re part of Bachelor Nation, it’s a great option.
