Cable TV may soon have some new competition: Hulu.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the streaming giant is developing a new service to connect subscribers to the live feeds of broadcast and cable TV channels.
The unnamed service is expected to include a number of popular channels, including Fox, ABC and ESPN — being co-owned by Walt Disney and 21st Century Fox definitely has its perks.
Comcast is another partial owner of Hulu, but so far it's unclear if its NBC channels will be a part of the new service.
The Wall Street Journal predicts the new service will also include a way to record shows and watch previous episodes on-demand.
Right now, basic Hulu subscriptions go for $7.99 a month — analysts expect the new bundle will have a much bigger price tag at $40 a month.
If you've already cut the cord, you know $40 a month isn’t unreasonable for a bundle like this. Sony’s PlayStation Vue bundles cost $30 to $45 a month, while Sling TV’s basic package of 19 channels rings in at $20 a month.
But Hulu’s new service will likely standout from the others. As The Verge points out, "Hulu has a lot more name recognition than the relatively new PlayStation Vue — and even SlingTV for that matter."
The new service is expected to roll out during the first quarter of 2017.
