Hulu with Live TV, first impressions from the beta version: This ia a bundle that pretends it's not

<article>
   <section class="page">
<p>Hulu with Live TV is not the channel bundle you might’ve grown up with. The $40-per-month streaming service clearly wants to be something other than cable.</p><p>Aside from being cheaper than the average pay TV package, Hulu’s new bundle aims to blur the lines between live TV, on-demand shows, and DVR. It pushes personalized recommendations on what to watch, and it shunts the notion of channel-flipping out of the spotlight. Recordings, on-demand episodes, and Hulu’s existing TV and movie library intermingle in ways that obscure the source of what you’re watching, as if to suggest that only the content matters.</p><p>Hulu’s attempt to distance itself from the legacy TV experience is refreshing, and it can lead to discovering some great television. But it can also be disorienting, due to an expansive, sometimes confusing menu system. Hulu also accurately describes the current service as a beta, and it’s marred by limited device support and occasional glitches. We’re not going to render a review score until Hulu lifts the beta tag; in the meantime, cord-cutters signing up for the service in its current state should be aware they’re paying for an unfinished product.</p><p class="jumpTag"><a href="/article/3196666/streaming-services/hulu-with-live-tv-first-impressions-from-the-beta-version-this-ia-a-bundle-that-pretends-its-not.html#jump">To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here[/url]</p></section></article>
