Move Over Netflix: Hulu’s Live TV Streaming Service Will Have Disney on Demand
Does anyone even really have cable TV anymore? With on-demand, PVR and streaming services, we’re living in a wonderful age of being able to watch all our favorite shows any way we want. Now, with Hulu creating its own television-based live-streaming service, we’ll have even more ways to watch anything we want without actually having cable. While the company has been acquiring next-day shows from basic cable channels left, right and center, yesterday they released news on premium cable channels they’ll be live-streaming. And all us Disney fans are pretty thrilled at the news.
The streaming service has announced today that they have added Fox and Disney channels to their roster of live-streaming offerings. This is monumental, since more and more people are leaving traditional cable and satellite TV behind, but Netflix and other streaming services don’t always cut it. According to Hulu, for $40 a month, you basically get a whole suite of channels and streaming through the company’s platforms.
When Hulu announced their newest offering earlier this year, they shared their first partnership with Time-Warner (TNT, TBS, Adult Swim etc). This Disney announcement also sees Disney-owned channels like ABC, ABC Family, ESPN and more. It looks like Hulu’s live-stream TV might be even better than the real thing, since these partnerships have the live TV moving over to on-demand too.
We’re loving this new digital-based television era and can’t wait to see how the Hulu streaming service plays out, since we don’t even have to be home anymore to catch our favorite live TV moments.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
