Hulu has launched a live news stream to integrate with its on demand app so people can stay up to date with the latest COVID-19 news.

The stream is free of charge for those who subscribe to the on-demand service, and is provided in partnership with ABC News Live.

Live news is brought to subscribers on a 24/7 basis, and both those who pay for Hulu standalone and as part of a bundle subscription with Disney+ and ESPN+ are eligible.

The live stream is also featured in the Hulu Picks section, and it is available for living room devices, mobile devices and popular games consoles.

The on-demand service is bigger than its live TV branch, as there are 27.2 million paid subscribers compared with 3.2 million for Live TV.
