Two phoenix rising
Hulu offers Cord Cutters a bit of everything. You can choose a huge catalog of the most popular TV shows and movies, or combine it with a live TV streaming service filled with sports, news, and entertainment. It even offers a version of the a la carte TV dream, with access to premium channels like Showtime and HBO on a single bill.
Android TV has grown and evolved in ways similar to Hulu. What began as Google's over-the-top OS for streaming devices morphed into a smart TV OS. Through it all, the NVIDIA Shield TV has been the flagship of Android TV, in the truest sense of the word. Few modern tech devices have the longevity of performance and updates the Shield TV has on Android TV.
And starting in August 2019, Hulu finally has updated its Android TV app with all the features the service can throw at you — and that includes the ability to stream live TV.
All the features, and then some
The reason this is a big deal is that until the update in in August 2019, Hulu had a pretty hamstrung app on Android TV. Sure, it worked for the back catalog. But it was missing all kinds of other features.
The biggest of those was Hulu with Live TV. It's quickly become one of the go-to options for anyone looking to streaming live network shows, thanks in no small part to it being integrated with the rest of Hulu. But the old Android TV didn't have it. it also didn't have other features like support for multiple accounts, or the "My Stuff" section that helps you personalize your Hulu experience.
With this update — which first rolled out in an update to the NVIDIA Shield — the Hulu app on Android TV is now on par with other platforms.
And not a moment too soon.
The full Hulu experience is expansive
Hulu becomes more appealing to Android TV owners with the Latest app. Hulu on-demand starts at $6 a month for those wanting access to their huge catalog of network & original content. Live TV starts at $45 a month.
