Consumer Reports Joins Us To Talk About Hulu’s New TV Streaming Service

Consumer Reports joined Into Tomorrow this week to give us a look at Hulu’s TV Streaming service:

If you’ve looking to cut the cord, the alternative options to paid cable have been growing. The latest to debut is Hulu with Live TV. Consumer Reports electronics spokesman James McQueen is here to tell us more about it.

We’ve given Hulu’s new TV streaming service a spin. There was a lot to like, including an easy-to-use interface and a fairly robust channel lineup. But we found the service to have a not-quite-finished feel, perhaps not surprising since Hulu says this is a beta version.

Hulu TV is available nationally. It offers about 50 channels, plus a cloud DVR service for recording shows and storing them online, all for $40 a month. You’ll also get on-demand content from Hulu’s current streaming service, with the option of paying a bit more for a commercial-free option.

Right now, Hulu TV includes live content from the four major broadcast networks—ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC—but only in a handful of major markets. The company says that live broadcast programming from local affiliates in other markets will be available later this year. Hulu TV also has a nice representation of cable channels, including A&E, Bravo, Cartoon Network/Adult Swim, Disney, E!, Food Network, FX, HGTV, and Travel Channel. You also get History Channel, National Geographic, plus news channels such as CNN, CNBC, and Fox News.

For Into Tomorrow, James McQueen – Consumer Reports

Chris shared an app he’s been playing with:

I’ve talked about the first aid app from the American Red Cross before. Now, I’d like to talk about their Pet First Aid app. This 99 cent app will put veterinary advice in the palm of your hand. The app has first aid steps for common pet situations through a combination of text, video and images. There’s an early warning sign checker to alert you to potential health problems as well as step by step, size specific CPR procedures for your dog or cat. There’s even a quiz that can help you stay at the top of your game when it comes to caring for your pet, and you can enter your vet’s info so that you can make an appointment right from the app. The Pet First Aid by American Red Cross app is 99 cents and is available for iOS and Android.
