Rumors surrounding Hulu’s plans to launch a “cable-style online TV service” were apparently not grossly exaggerated.
Just a couple of days ago it was reported that Hulu had aspirations to jump into the live TV game, with indications that the service could launch its live TV option in early 2017. On top of that, Hulu would offer packages, which would include TV channels like Fox, ESPN, and others, for up to $40 per month.
And now it’s been confirmed. Hulu’s chief, Mike Hopkins, has said that the TV service, which will focused on live broadcasts of network shows, news, and sports, will launch in the early part of 2017. He didn’t actually add much more than that, unfortunately, in terms of pricing or network availability.
Hopkins did say that, over the course of this year, Hulu will be announcing more regarding the plan. As it stands, it looks like Hulu was able to figure out pricing and packaging, something that even Apple wasn’t able to lock down, if all those rumors were true.
