Winner on Included Features: Hulu

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 $6/month. That’s honestly a great deal for the number of movies and shows you’ll get. Normally, ad-free access to Hulu’s library would cost US$ 14.99 / 月. You’ll be able to see “The Handmaid's Tale,” “Pam & Tommy,” “Only Murders in the Building,” “Little Fires Everywhere,” “Palm Springs,” “PEN15,” “Shrill,” and a great rotating library of blockbuster movies.

FuboTV offers no similar feature.

The Disney Bundle

Subscribers to Hulu Live TV now get automatic access to Disney+ and ESPN+. That means you’ll be able to stream most of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, every Star Wars film, Pixar movies, and classic Disney animation, along with the strong sports package on ESPN+, including tons of NHL games. It’s a staggering amount of content and it comes as part of your normal Hulu Live TV subscription.

DVR

Hulu provides an unlimited DVR. You can keep your recordings up to nine months.

FuboTV offers a 1000-hour DVR.

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, everything from Disney+, the excellent sports package from ESPN+, and the cost for the ad-free Hulu upgrade is very reasonable.
