Reports recently surfaced that Hulu is working on a live TV service that will serve as an alternative to cable. While many people have been ditching traditional cable for streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu, there is still a demand for live TV. This platform will offer another option when it comes to choosing between cable and streaming services.

The newest Hulu platform will function as a live TV service for cord cutters. Unlike cable, the platform will not feature every single channel in existence. Instead, the platform will emphasis quality over quantity, with channels such as ABC, Fox and ESPN acting as pillars of the new service. The platform will also allow users to record live shows in the cloud, instead of on a DVR, in order to give customers greater flexibility.

Expected to cost about $40 per month, the new Hulu platform will offer an inexpensive alternative to cable that still provides consumers with access to live TV.
