Hulu Live TV Streaming Service Rumored to Launch in May

Way back in May of last year, Hulu officially announced that it would be launching its own live TV streaming service.

Since then, details have been trickling out. We already know the companies that have inked deals with Hulu to have content available for the service when it launches. We know how much it costs. And we’ve seen the service detailed ahead of its launch later this year.

Now, thanks to TechCrunch, we know when it will arrive. More or less. According to the new report, Hulu is aiming for a launch in May. Inside sources have said the company is aiming for a launch timeframe in the first week of May. However, that is considered a “rolling target,” and that it may get pushed to later in the month.

“Hulu has publicly said that its new live TV streaming service will launch sometime this spring, but the company is now telling staff internally that the launch date being targeted is the first week of May, sources tell TechCrunch. The launch will additionally coincide with the arrival of Hulu’s new user experience, shown off earlier this year at CES.

However, we understand that the “first week of May” is definitely considered a rolling target. Hulu doesn’t have to launch then, and may choose to push it back further in the month.”

Hulu is apparently aiming for a May release date, whether it’s at the beginning of the month or near the end. So, for anyone who might not have access to YouTube TV just yet, or who have simply been waiting for Hulu TV, there’s a month to circle on the calendar at least.
