The live TV streaming landscape is continuing to grow, with the recently announced YouTube TV and an upcoming service from Hulu joining Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and DirecTV Now. Hulu’s service continues to look better and better, and on Friday the company announced a deal with A+E Networks that will bring six of its brands to the service when it launches.

“As we begin to finalize our new live TV service, we’re pulling together the most valuable, well-rounded package of channels available for under $40,” Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins said in a statement. “We know the A+E Networks brand of award-winning storytelling is important to our viewers, and we’re very excited to add their networks to the core service we launch this spring.”

The deal adds a total of six networks: A&E, History, Lifetime, LMN, FYI, and Viceland. Not only does this bring access to the live channels mentioned above, but on-demand access to programming like History’s The Curse of Oak Island, A&E’s Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, Lifetime’s Project Runway. Original movies from Lifetime and documentaries from History and Viceland will also be made available.

“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Hulu to offer our A+E Networks’ portfolio of brands on their live TV streaming service at launch,” A+E Networks president and CEO Nancy Dubuc said. “Having our top six networks available on their core package speaks to the power of our entertainment portfolio in reaching men, women, adults and millennials.”

These new channels will be joining channels from CBS Corporation, 21st Century Fox, The Walt Disney Company, and Turner Networks. So far there is no official date for when the service will go live, or what exactly it will be priced at, but Hopkins has confirmed on multiple occasions that the live TV service will be available for less than $40 per month.

The YouTube TV on a Roku TV.

When you think of streaming video, you think YouTube. And so YouTube TV — Google's live TV streaming service — very much just makes sense for a lot of people. Designed for those who want to cut the cord and ditch their cable or satellite subscriptions (and known in the industry as a multichannel video programming distributor, or MPVD), YouTube TV competes in the same arena as other streaming television services like DirecTV Stream (formerly known as AT&T TV Now and DirecTV Now), Sling TV, FuboTV, and Hulu With Live TV.

And YouTube TV offers a unique mix of features that make it very appealing, so much so that it's now the No. 1 service in the U.S. in terms of the number of paid subscribers, with some 5 million subscribers as of June 2022 — up some 2 million from the last time the service gave an update in October 2020. The popularity is due to several factors. YouTube TV is easy to use. It's got a selection of channels that's competitive with all its rivals. And the YouTube TV price is competitive, too. You're able to watch YouTube TV on pretty much any modern device. And the fact that parent company Alphabet (aka Google) has been marketing the heck out of it the past few years certainly hasn't hurt, either.
