Hulu will roll out its live TV lineup in early 2017, complete with shows from the Walt Disney Company and 21st Century Fox, two of Hulu's founding partners, the company announced today. The agreement brings more than 35 networks to Hulu's live service, including ABC, FOX, Fox Sports channels, ESPN channels, Disney Channel and XD, Freeform, National Geographic and Nat Geo Wild.

These networks join Time Warner Inc.'s Turner channels on Hulu's live service. The Turner deal brings TBS, TNT, CNN, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim and Boomerang, among other affiliated channels, to Hulu's live service. This deal follows Time Warner's purchase of 10 percent of Hulu for $583 million. Viacom is also on board for live Hulu programming, but it's unclear which of its networks in particular will be available.

Hulu doesn't detail how much its live TV service will cost, but describes it as "a complement to the company's current ad-supported and ad-free subscription video on demand products." The Wall Street Journal reported in May that it would cost $40. That's more than Sling's $20 basic package, for example, and it's not yet known if the reported $40 price tag includes Hulu's traditional streaming options.
