Hulu confirmed several months ago that it’s going to launch a standalone live TV streaming service. The company has since been working on this service and has been inking agreements with channel owners to bring more content to the service. Hulu has officially confirmed today that NBCUniversal channels are going to be a part of its standalone live TV streaming service.

Hulu today confirmed that it has signed an agreement with NBCUniversal to bring its channels to the new streaming service. The channels include NBC, Telemundo, NBC, Syfy, E! as well as the MSNBC and CNBC news networks.

“Hulu will soon provide an affordable, complete live TV package that includes all four major broadcast networks, the top-rated cable news channels, a massive sports offering, and our deep existing premium streaming library for under $40,” confirmed Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins in a press release today.

Hopkins keeps mentioning that Hulu’s service is going to cost under $40 per month. Reports suggest that it will be priced at $39.99 so the CEO is technically correct when he says that the service will cost under $40.

Hulu has already signed agreements with a wide variety of networks and broadcasters, including but not limited to CBS, Fox, Turner Networks, The Walt Disney Company, and others.

The company is yet to confirm precisely when its live TV streaming service is going to be launched, only mentioning that it will go live at some point this spring.
