We're usually the biggest supporters of the cordcutting lifestyle, though with the current pandemic the world has on its hands, now is one of the worst times to not have access to a live news channel on your television at home. Updates are coming every few hours, and with how quickly information is changing, it's so important to have the most up-to-date info on the virus.

Hulu is helping its current subscribers out by offering a live stream of ABC News for free (opens in new tab). Access is open for all subscribers, so whether you're on a Limited Commercials, No Commercials, or a Hulu with Live TV plan, you'll be able to watch ABC News at any time of the day. This 24/7 livestream of the channel can be found by navigating to the Hulu Picks section at Hulu.

Hulu's ABC News livestream is available to watch on any device which supports the Hulu app. That means you can check up on the latest updates by downloading the Hulu app on your smartphone, tablet, or streaming device.

If you're not a Hulu subscriber already, now's a better time than ever to give it a try. Though the free ABC News channel will likely not remain around forever, you have the opportunity to see how a livestreamed TV channel would perform with your current internet speeds. That could give you a good idea of how Hulu with Live TV would perform as well. Hulu's plans start at just $6.99 per month for the on-demand movies and shows, while Live TV plans start at $54.99 per month. Start a free 30-day trial (opens in new tab) today to start watching ABC News as well as the thousands of other shows and movies available to stream on the service.

  • On my Hulu, no live tv, I cannot view the ABC News Live...it says only available with Live TV
  • That's strange as the feature should have been available as early as March 20 to all members. It's possible you might need to update the Hulu app on the device you're attempting to watch on.
  • I'm updated and nothing on my Android device.
  • Thats cool I guess. Ive had it with Android Authority. Hopefully I can trash apple here as much as I want without my account being banned.
  • This channel is an added one to the Live TV subscribers...not the Hulu only ones ($6/month)
  • It's for every Hulu subscriber. I have access to it on my account with just a base Hulu plan paying only $6 per month.
  • You can already get the ABC News Live stream 24/7 on YouTube, Hulu needs to throw out a bigger bone than that
  • I believe that's for a trial as I don't think you can watch all the TV shows beside the live news streams. Also, if you have YouTube TV, then yes but that's not the free regular YouTube which everyone has access to.
  • I only have YouTube premium, I have access to the ABC News Live stream and today I just saw that NBC News has a 24/7 live stream now as well on Youtube, they do have commercials on these streams but not many.
