Análisis de Hulu Live TV

Updated on Jason Gurwin

Hulu Live TV is a live TV streaming service with more than 70 channels for $69.99/month. Hulu + Live TV base plan includes local channels, 33 of the top 35 cable channels, and regional sports networks (RSNs).

It also now includes The Disney Bundle, so you get Disney+ and ESPN+ at no extra charge. They also now include an Unlimited DVR with the ability to skip through commercials.

Upgrades are available for premium channels, unlimited screens, and commercial-free access to Hulu’s on demand library.


We tested Hulu Live TV and other live TV streaming services for more than 100 hours. Hulu Live TV is compatible with Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Roku, Android TV, iPhone/iPad, Android Phone/Tablet, Mac, Windows, PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, LG Smart TV, Samsung Smart TV, Sony Smart TV y VIZIO Smart TV.

We show you how to watch live tv with Hulu, using their Hulu + Live TV streaming service.



Unlimited Cloud DVR

Hulu includes Unlimited DVR storage, allowing you to keep shows for up to 9 months. You can fast-forward through recorded content.

You cannot record individual episodes of a show—only an entire series.

Up to 2 Devices

This service allows for two simultaneous streams (among TV devices, smartphones, tablets, and computers).

For $9.99/month, you can upgrade to use Hulu Live TV on unlimited screens at home and three mobile screens.

On Demand

Hulu’s major strength is its on demand library of movies and shows. You will get access to their full streaming library, which means full seasons from networks like FX (“What We Do In the Shadows,” “Atlanta,” “Fargo”) and ABC (“Abbott Elementary,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Modern Family”). Hulu’s movie library includes hits like “Prey,” “Parasite,” and “Moneyball.”

One frustrating part of Hulu’s on demand content is that the ads are exceedingly long (~3 minutes). If you want to remove commercials, they offer an upgrade for $6/month.

Parental Controls

To use parental controls with Hulu Live TV, you need to create a user profile with “Kids Mode” enabled.

DIRECTV STREAM y Sling TV also have parental control features.

Hulu Originals Característica

Hulu Live TV users get access to Hulu’s original content like “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Only Murders in the Building,” “Pam & Tommy,” “The Bear,” and “The Patient.”

The Hulu documentary section is a special treat.

Commercial-Free On Demand Característica

You can watch Hulu’s entire streaming library commercial-free for an additional $6/month.
