Hulu Live TV vs. FuboTV - Which Should You Choose?

Ben Bowman

If you’re looking for a new live TV streaming service, is fuboTV or Hulu Live TV a better choice? The decision may depend on what you value most. Both are excellent streaming options with lots of pros and cons. If you’d like a quick comparison, check out The Streamable’s Service Matchmaker. Let’s dig in to compare your options.

Winner on Price: Draw

Hulu clocks in at US$ 64,99 / maand and fuboTV is US$ 64,99 / maand, so there’s no benefit to one over the other. We’ll have to look elsewhere to make the choice.

Winner on Overall Channels: Hulu

When it comes to the base tiers, both services are quite comparable. Hulu includes 32 of the top 35 cable channels, which tops fuboTV’s 27.

FuboTV offers these channels that Hulu doesn’t: AMC, Hallmark Channel en WE tv.

But Hulu will be your choice if you like to watch A&E, Cartoon Network, CNN, History, Lifetime, TBS, TNT en truTV

Overall, fuboTV has 109 channels while Hulu offers 97.

Channel Upgrades

Both services allow you to get add a package of additional channels for US$ 8/month.

Both upgrade packages give you American Heroes, BET Her, Cooking Channel, Destination America, Discovery Family, Discovery Life, DIY, GAC Family, Great American Country, Magnolia Network, MTV Classic, MTV2, Nicktoons, Science en TeenNick.

But the fubo Extra package is a far better value, since you’d also get Baby TV, BBC World News, BET Jams, BET Soul, ESPNEWS, ESPNU, FXM, GINX Esports TV, GSN, Hallmark Drama, INSP, Law&Crime, LOGO, MTV Live, MTVU, Nat Geo Wild, Nick Music, PeopleTV, Revolt, Sony Movie Channel, XITE en Zona Futbol.

You won’t get those channels with Hulu Live TV’s Entertainment Add-on, but it does give you the edge if you prefer CNBC World.

Winner on Included Features: Draw

On Demand Library

Hulu Live users get access to Hulu’s vast library of on demand content, although you will see ads unless you’re willing to upgrade for another $6/month. That’s honestly a great deal for the number of movies and shows you’ll get. Normally, ad-free access to Hulu’s library would cost US$ 12,99 / maand. You’ll be able to see “The Handmaid's Tale,” “Little Fires Everywhere,” “Palm Springs,” “PEN15,” “Shrill,” and a great rotating library of blockbuster movies.

FuboTV offers no similar feature.

DVR

If you’re the kind of person who records a lot of TV, you will prefer fuboTV and its 250-hour cloud DVR. For another $5/month, you can upgrade to a 1000-hour DVR.

Hulu includes a cloud DVR with 50 hours of capacity, though you can’t fast-forward through commercials. (Brutal, if you ask us.) You can upgrade to the Enhanced Cloud DVR for $9.99/month. That provides 200 hours of storage space and you can fast forward through ads.

Lookback

FuboTV’s lookback feature lets you watch sports and entertainment shows that aired in the previous three days that aren’t available on demand. Some of these shows allow you to skip commercials.

Verdict

If you’re a sports fan, the optionality of fuboTV is hard to beat. Your ability to load up on sports packages and cut them loose month-to-month is a tempting offer. With almost any upgrade package available, fuboTV’s packages give you more bang for your buck.

If you’re more inclined toward general entertainment and movies, Hulu makes more sense because you’ll get access to that great library, and the cost for the ad-free version of that service is very reasonable.
