Why Hulu Plus will subvert the Via Cable Tv Business?
Hulu, the streaming service company witch offers Tv shows, clips, movies and other streaming media is planning to launch a new service that provides access to 50-plus live broadcast and cable networks with an on-demand library.
Many analyst predicts that Hulu live streaming will have 10 million subscriber service by 2020. Hulu also wants to expand its footprint to areas like events, news and sports. This new service could seriously shake up the sports TV landscape.
Hulu is owned by the largest purchasers of sports rights (Disney, Fox and Comcast). Hulu Plus will keep price down by limiting expenses including fees from set-top boxes, while also cutting out the channels of Viacom, Scripps, and Discovery.
The analysts argue that a focus on making sports an immersive experience, would help Hulu Plus charge a premium for its new service in the long-run. The product will have a wide commercial appeal and an attractive economics.
A service like Hulu Plus could save its customers about $ 8 per month and become the new leader in sport programming.
