Nathan McAlone describes Hulu’s new live TV service.
Hulu With Live TV works much like a cable- or satellite-TV package, except it’s delivered over the internet to your smart TV, phone, tablet, and so on.
Cable TV becomes streaming TV.
The new package of “over 50 channels” is built on deals with the four big broadcast networks: ABC, Fox, NBC, and crucially CBS, which has been absent from some early streaming-TV packages. So you get all of those plus the cable channels they own.
But no local channels, so only the quality is better than cable TV in 1989.
