If you haven’t yet “cut the cord” but find yourself more and more tempted to do so… a great time to make the move may be now.
As forecast by Insider Intelligence, less than half of U.S. households will have a traditional pay TV subscription by the end of 2023. If you’re ready to join that cord-cutting crowd and if you choose the right streaming bundle, you may not miss what that overstuffed cable package foisted upon you.
Take a look at Hulu + Live TV, a streaming bundle which for $69.99 a month gives you access to a wide array of content from Hulu, Disney+ and ESPN+, plus the ability to stream live TV from more than 75 channels (detailed below).
The fresh fare arriving on Hulu alone this month includes Season 2 of the acclaimed comedy Reservation Dogs, the Predator prequel movie Prey, the Mike Tyson bio-series Mike and the new Steve Carell-led psychological thriller The Patient. And you know you won’t want to miss the final episodes of Only Murders in the Building Season 2.
New releases on Disney+, meanwhile, include the streaming premiere of Disney-Pixar’s Lightyear, the I Am Groot series of animated sorts, the LEGO Star Wars Summer Vacation special and Marvel’s She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (starring Tatiana Maslany).
Over on ESPN+, you can binge the Derek Jeter docuseries The Captain, catch the latest episodes of America’s Caddie, keep current via SportsCenter and stream a robust selection of live MLB telecasts and PGA championship tour coverage.
And on top of all that, Hulu + Live TV — as the name would suggest — lets you stream live TV from more than 75 channels, such as those below:
Or you can keep paying your cable company a small fortune for a package of channels that includes many you never watch. And, oh yeah, pay for a streaming service (or several) on top of that.
Review the list below of series, movies and specials coming up on Hulu, Disney+ and ESPN+ in August — while also keeping in mind the Live TV option — and ask yourself anew: Is it time to cut the cord, and instead upgrade to Hulu + Live TV?
