Hulu with Live TV, which combines Hulu's on-demand product and live streaming, has about 450K paying subscribers, not including recent promo customers. Hulu is co-owned by Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA), Disney (NYSE:DIS), Fox (FOX, FOXA) and Time Warner (NYSE:TWX).
BTIG analyst Rich Greenfield says the value proposition for the newer streaming services isn’t outstanding compared to video on demand.
YouTube Live costs $35/month, but regular YouTube is free. Hulu with Live TV costs $39.99/month while its standard Hulu service is $8/month and “can get you all the programming you want for more than $30 less,” says Greenfield, with the notable exception of live sports.
Update: Post updated to clarify that Hulu with Live TV includes the on-demand product.
