Hulu with Live TV: Price, live channels, and how it works

If you’re looking for live TV but don’t want to commit to signing up for cable, Hulu just might be for you.

Ever since 2017, the Disney-owned platform has offered a range of live television packages. Hulu with Live TV plans currently start at $69.99 per month, which includes not only over 75 Live TV channels, but access to Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+. A Hulu with Live TV package is perfect for cord-cutters who already love streaming but miss the convenience of watching shows live, local programming, and sports.
