At $6 a month, basic Hulu is one of the best deals in streaming with gobs of current and past TV shows and movies. Its Hulu with Live TV upgrade costs a lot more at $55, but that monthly fee buys one of the best live TV streaming services around. Hulu Plus Live TV is among our favorite recommendations for people looking to quit cable TV yet keep live sports, news and other channels. It has a healthy mix of channels and includes a cloud DVR at the cheapest tier, but it’s Hulu’s deep on-demand catalog that sets it apart. 

Like

  • Solid mix of channels for the money
  • Full access to Hulu’s on-demand content

Don’t Like

  • The interface is a little funky
  • DVR is quite limited without the $10 upgrade
  • YouTube TV is $5 cheaper for more channels

Overall we still like YouTube TV ($50 at YouTube TV)
