What is Hulu + Live TV and how is it different than HuluLive TV?
Hulu Live TV and Hulu+ Live TV are the same thing. The plus sign simply indicates the addition of live TV channels to its streaming library. In fact, Hulu was the first streaming TV provider to make use of this symbol.
As opposed to regular Hulu TV, which is a streaming library of shows accessed on demand, HuluLive TV is a linear TV streaming service. It uses the same model of regular cable and satellite TV providers: TV shows are based on a channel grid schedule. “Linear TV” refers to the change of shows for a given live channel (network) over time.
Hulu Live offers competition to other streaming TV providers in terms of having live channels in addition to video-on-demand services. These competitors include YouTube TV, Fubo TV, Sling tv, Philo TV and DirecTV Stream. Finally, Hulu Live TV is available both with and without ads for $70 and $76/month, respectively (as of Dec. 2021).
