Hulu's Live TV Service Gains ViacomCBS Channels, Including Nickelodeon, Comedy Central
ViacomCBS channels are available to Hulu live TV subscribers right now.
Hulu announced in January that it would be adding a bunch of popular channels to its live TV subscription courtesy ViacomCBS. Nearly four months later, the channels are now available, The Verge reports.
The deal between Hulu and ViacomCBS includes Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., BET, VH1, MTV, CMT, TV Land, and Paramount Network. These channels are part of Hulu's $64.99 live TV package, which also comes with access to a bunch of shows from ViacomCBS' back catalog. A bunch of other channels like BET Her, Discovery Life, MTV2, and TeenNick are also available via a separate "Entertainment Add-On" package, which is an additional $7.99.
The good news here is that these additional channels arrive without a commensurate price hike--at least for now. The Verge notes that Hulu raised the price of this package by $10 back in November, so another increase so soon seems unlikely.
The current pricing is in line with many other live TV services. YouTube TV, FuboTV, and AT&T TV are priced similarly for similar numbers of channels, and a price increase would put it above these other services, putting it at a disadvantage.
