Hulu launched Live TV six months ago, to a somewhat lukewarm response. The channel offering wasn’t radically different from other services like DirecTV Now, and the price — $40 for 50 channels — is a lot more cable than Netflix. But thanks to some recent upgrades and some time spent with the service, it’s looking like one of the best cable TV alternatives of 2017, and it comes with DVR to boot.
The company has updated the UI of the web player version, and it looks much better than when it launched. In particular, there’s a new guide that looks like an improved version of a regular cable guide: Listings of every channel and what they’re playing right now, in a much more attractive shell.
