Hulu's Live TV streaming service is now available in beta and comes at $39.99 per month. It provides you access to 50 broadcast and cable channels along with on-demand content. Before enjoying the Live contents, you will first have to sign up with Hulu for Live TV on iPhone and computer.
If you have Apple TV, you will be able to take advantage of the Live TV contents through Hulu's streaming app itself. However, you will need to download a separate app called Hulu with Live TV on your iPhone or iPad—even if you already have a Hulu app installed on your iOS device and subscribed to its streaming contents. Currently, there is no option to sign up for the Live TV streaming service in Hulu's app. To do so, you need to navigate to its website. Find out how it's done!
