Hulu plans to launch a live TV streaming service in 2017, and now we have an idea of some of the things you’ll be able to watch.
Time Warner has just bought a 10 percent stake in Hulu, joining existing partners Disney, Fox, and Comcast. In the announcement, Time Warner notes that content from its Turner network channels will be available live and on-demand through Hulu.
That means Adult Swim, Boomerang, Cartoon Network, CNN, TBS, TNT, TruTV, and Turner Classic Movies are all coming to Hulu’s live streaming service.
The announcements also makes it clear that Hulu isn’t going all-in on live video: the company will continue to offer its existing on-demand video services, with ad-supported and higher-priced ad-free options.
Meanwhile, Time Warner doesn’t seem to be bringing all of its TV content to Hulu. HBO is also a subsidiary of Time Warner, but the announcement makes no mention of HBO.
Hulu does allow you to pay extra to add Showtime to a Hulu Plus subscription, but HBO currently offers its own standalone streaming services through apps like HBO Go and HBO Now.
