    • Saturday Night Live
    • Sunday Night Football
    • Keeping Up With The Kardashians
    • Mr. Robot
    • The Voice
    • Blindspot
    • 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.
