What is Hulu TV?

Hulu is an on-demand premium streaming service in the US.  It offers TV shows and feature-length movies. Unlike cable, there are no hidden fees, equipment rentals or installation appointments.

Hulu focuses primarily on streaming newer TV shows from popular networks as well as original content, blockbuster and independent films and documentaries.

The platform differs from Netflix and Amazon Prime Video in that it gives people early access to popular series from multiple traditional networks.  Waiting periods are only a week and in some cases, just a day, to watch shows after they’ve aired.

 

Can I Download Hulu Shows and Movies?

Yes, users can download certain movies and shows to their devices.  However, this is available only to “Hulu (No Ads) and Hulu (No Ads) + Live TV” subscribers with supported mobile devices: iOS, Android, Amazon Fire devices.

To learn more about downloading Hulu content, see the official Hulu TV download webpage.  It’s important to note this is different from the DVR recordings (which are cloud-based and require online access to stream from it).  The benefit of downloads is they can be accessed when you’re offline (e.g. during air travel).

Hulu Live TV channels and full sports stations lists can be downloaded here.  They are free printable PDF files available for download.

For best results when printing our Hulu Live Channels lineup guide, use thick-stock gloss or matte paper. 

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).

Hulu + Live TV Channel Notes:

As advertised on their website, Hulu offers “75+ stations” (base channels) as well as numerous add-ons.  However, when counted, the actual number of base stations is 85, so that’s a bonus.  All major local stations are available with Hulu and include ABC, CBS, NBC and The CW.

Major sports networks include the ESPN “series”*, CBS and NBC Sports (CBSN and NBCSN, respectively), Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2, SEC Network, ACCN and the Big Ten Network.  Along with NFL Network, these all are base channels for Hulu whereas NFL Redzone is an add-on.  

[*ESPN series includes ESPN, ESPN 2, ESPN College Extra, ESPNews and ESPNU]

Finally, Hulu sports channels also include the Golf Channel and Olympic channel (both are base channels), whereas Motortrend, Sportsman Channel and TVG Racing 1 and 2 are add-ons.  

Notably missing from the Hulu sports lineup are MLB Network, NHL Network and NBA TV.  However, basketball fans can catch most games on either ABC, ESPN, TNT or regional sports networks from NBCSN and Fox Sports.
