Hulu announced that it reached a deal with NBC Universal that add all its major cable channels as well as its broadcast network to Hulu's upcoming live TV service.
This brings the total number of channels up to 50 and is a major step in their effort to compete with Netflix. Hulu used to take a backseat to Netflix’s content but the streaming services are going in different directions.
Hulu continues to build its library with content from big networks while Netflix is focusing more on original content.
Hulu’s live stream service is supposed to come out sometime in May.
