Hulu + Live TV has over 85 channels, though it can vary depending on your location, with the option of add-on channels at an extra charge.
Hulu is one of the leading, paid subscription, video-on-demand platforms in the market today.
The introduction of Hulu + Live TV only made the platform more popular, as this meant that cable television users could cut costs on their cable contracts and subscribe to this all-inclusive service instead.
Besides offering a cheaper live television viewing experience without an expensive cable contract, the subscription also offers viewers over 85 channels as of 2022. Moreover, you can get add-on services and channels at an extra charge to your annual subscription fee.

Hulu has four subscription packages to choose from. The first two are the Hulu video-on-demand packages. The most affordable is the $6.99 (or $69.99 annually) ad-supported subscription package. The second Hulu package is the $12.99 ad-break free package.
However, the Hulu Live + TV subscription packages start at $69.99 per month, with add-ons at an additional cost.

Advantages of a Hulu + Live TV subscription
Besides the extensive live television channels available through a Hulu + Live TV subscription and the option to add premium channels to your subscription, Hulu has other advantages of opting for their subscription, such as, “Each network also offers a wide variety of on-demand shows and movies from their libraries.
There are some cases where we have select seasons/episodes of a show in the Hulu streaming library, but additional ones are provided by the network.”
Despite this, the platform does indicate that even the network on-demand shows that are available may have ads on, no matter which subscription package you opt for.
Additional features of a Hulu + Live TV subscription
Hulu + Live TV has some additional beneficial features. The first is that users have unlimited storage on their DVR for their favourite series, sporting events, or films. There is a live guide that helps the user navigate the extensive available channels better.
Additionally, the subscription allows subscribers to watch from two devices simultaneously, and to create up to six different profiles on one subscription with the personalisation feature ensuring that each profile’s favourites appear when they log in.
The last benefit is the autoplay button, which allows you to binge-watch series without the hassle of manually moving to the next episode.
