Today Hulu took steps to help inform people from within the Hulu app.  A live TV option is available with multiple live news channels for $54.95/mo but this channel is free with all plans including the $5.99/mo option.

ABC News Live is a 24/7 channel that has been on Hulu for quiet a while now, but today will make the move to all plans for free to help inform people during this period.

“Given the rapidly-evolving situation around COVID-19, and to ensure that our viewers can stay informed during this time, we’re partnering with ABC News Live to bring the channel’s 24/7 live coverage to Hulu and Disney billed on-demand subscribers as part of their subscription,” Hulu said in a blog post today.

The channel will allow users to stream through smart TVs, mobile devices, streaming devices, and popular game consoles from within the Hulu app regardless of their subscription plan.
