With the Coronavirus taking hold across the United States, Disney has announced that they will be providing a free 24/7 stream of ABC News to Hulu’s Live to On-Demand Subscribers.
More than 45 percent of Hulu viewers have either cut the cord or never had cable, and may not have access to live, televised news to receive critical information during times of national crisis.
Given the rapidly-evolving situation around COVID-19, and to ensure that viewers can stay informed during this time, they’ve partnered 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.
From Friday, 20th March, subscribers to Hulu’s ad-supported and Hulu (No Ads) plans can easily access the ABC News Live stream by visiting the“Hulu Picks” collection. From there they can stream ABC News Live at any time of day, from their favorite living room and mobile devices, and popular game consoles.
With this live stream, Disney is aiming to keep viewers informed during this unprecedented time, when having access to information is vital to our communities.
