Both the CW and Hulu announced today that the CW’s primetime network shows will be added to Hulu’s live TV service.
No exact date was provided, but the statement noted the additions will be live in the coming months. The shows included in the service are
- The Flash
- Legends of Tomorrow
- Jane the Virgin
- Crazy Ex-girlfriend
The service is only $39.99 per month, so it’s a significant drop off in price from some cable providers. This addition is also a pretty decent upgrade considering you can only get the newest episodes the day after they originally air, and you’re limited to the most recent five episodes stored in the streaming service.
The $39.99 will get you 50 hours of DVR storage online and can use two streams at once. It’s available now on Xbox One, Amazon firestick, Apple TV, Chromecast, Android and iOS devices.
Although there is no official date listed yet, I’m guessing it will be done by October 9th, which is when the CW returns with its fall lineup beginning with Supergirl.
Will this convince you to get on board with a streaming service? Let us know below.
