Many people are hesitant about cutting the cord to cable because they love watching their favorite network television shows live. Hulu Live TV, a new streaming service from Hulu, not only allows subscribers to watch live TV, but at a fraction of the price of cable. Let's take a closer look at this new service and understand the benefits of Hulu Live TV.

How Does it Work?

Hulu Live TV is a streaming service that allows viewers to watch live television without having a cable subscription. The subscription works with a variety of streaming devices including Nintendo Switch, Apple TV, XBox, Amazon Fire Stick, and Roku. The service only requires an internet connection to be able to stream live television. Subscribers have the option to completely customize the channel line up and create a one-of-a-kind viewing service. Hulu Live TV also gives you the ability to record up to 50 hours of live TV and watch live TV on up to two devices.

How Much Does it Cost?

Hulu Live TV costs roughly $44.95 per month, but there is a trial available where viewers are able to sample the service for free for one week. Not only does the subscription give you access to live television, but you will be able to watch the entire Hulu library free of charge. The one benefit of Hulu Live TV is that there is not a contract involved with the subscription. Unlike cable, Hulu Live TV can be canceled at any time.
