Hulu is looking to become the leader in streaming live television. When Hulu announced its intentions of starting a live television service back in May, they were already ahead the curve with investors ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC already on board. Now, Hulu has the rights to the last major network — The CW Network (Owned by CBS and Warner Brothers).
Hulu’s Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Distribution, Tim Conolly, released a statement on the matter,
“The CW has long attracted younger audiences to live TV, so we are very happy to offer the network through Hulu’s new live service.”
The CW Network is home to a load of popular shows that include Arrow, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin, and The Flash.
The CW will be available for beta Live TV subscribers in select markets first before rolling out everywhere.
