Hulu has confirmed that it’s adding Android TV to the list of supported platforms for its Hulu with Live TV bundle. This means that those who own Android TV-powered devices will be able to access the streaming service’s TV plan through the app. The plan bundles Hulu’s content library with live programming from more than 60 channels.
Hulu with Live TV will be available for Android TV devices starting next month. Existing subscribers will be able to use it right away and those who want to try it out will be able to sign up for it. Hulu has priced its live TV bundle at $44.99 per month.
It has been positioned as a competitor to other standalone streaming services like Sling TV and PlayStation Vue. What set’s Hulu’s service apart is that it also offers access to the service’s entire content library which includes licensed content as well as its original productions.
Existing subscribers who own Android TV devices will appreciate that Hulu is finally adding support for this platform. They can already access the service on the other platforms where Hulu is available. It was holding out for Android TV for some reason but that’s soon going to be all in the past now.
