Hulu adds live TV package


Beginning today, viewers who subscribe to the Hulu with Live TV (Beta) plan can enjoy live and on demand programming from more than 50 popular sports, news, entertainment and kids' channels -- plus Hulu's deep existing premium streaming library -- all for $39.99 per month, with no setup costs or hidden fees. This includes 50 hours of recording storage, up to six individual profiles and two simultaneous streams per account, with options to upgrade to an enhanced Cloud DVR and unlimited in-home screens.

The service includes the regular Hulu streaming service and the typical slate of basic cable channels. The Cloud DVR and unlimited screens each cost an additional $15/mo or $20 as together. Showtime is also available for $9/mo.
