While Netflix is cornering the market on original online content, Hulu is busy allying with existing networks. The streaming service announced today that it had inked a deal with NBCUniversal. Hulu will now air every show owned by NBC and Telemundo — a lot of shows, basically.
If you need a scorecard, Hulu’s forthcoming Live TV service will be a new source for watching:
- Saturday Night Live
- Sunday Night Football
- Keeping Up With The Kardashians
- Mr. Robot
- The Voice
- The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
- Top Chef
- Real Housewives of etc.
- This is Us
- The Olympics
- Everything on Telemundo (I don’t speak Spanish, so I don’t know what’s popular, sorry)
This is the fourth major network Hulu has inked a deal with; after CBS, Fox, and Disney-ABC. According to TechCrunch, the Hulu app will feature an updated interface which will send you push notifications before your shows go live so you can record them.
