In the coming months, subscribers of the Hulu with Live TV (beta) plan will be able to enjoy live broadcasts of their favorite primetime CW series, as well as local station programming. The addition of The CW Network will bring all of the five US major broadcast networks to Hulu’s live TV streaming service.
“The CW has long attracted younger audiences to live TV, so we are very happy to offer the network through Hulu’s new live service,” said Tim Connolly, Senior Vice President, Strategic Partnerships & Distribution.
“The CW is excited to be a part of Hulu’s groundbreaking new live TV service,” said Chris Brooks, Executive Vice President, Network Distribution, The CW. “This new partnership furthers our goal of expanding our audience across digital platforms.”
Hulu's LiveTV service offers live and on-demand programming from more than 50 popular sports, news, entertainment and kids channels— plus Hulu’s entire premium streaming library with limited commercials— for $39.99 per month. This includes 50 hours of Cloud DVR recording storage, up to six individual profiles and two simultaneous streams per account, with options to upgrade to an enhanced Cloud DVR with 200 hours of storage and unlimited in-home concurrent screens. Hulu also offers premium network add-ons HBO, Cinemax and SHOWTIME with live and on-demand access to favorite premium series, films and specials from each network.
