Hulu May Offer a Live TV Broadcast Option


Hulu reportedly is in talks to launch a cable TV-like service early next year.

Other programmers and content providers apparently have discussed potential partnerships with Hulu. However, NBCUniversal — a subsidiary of Comcast, which owns its own over-the-top service, Stream — has not taken part in the negotiations.
