Here’s a deal that’s great for sports fans, but also for anyone who likes channel surfing. Between now and October 5, you can save $20 a month off Hulu + Live TV for your first three months. That gets you access to tons of NFL and college football games, plus literally everything else that’s on the included live cable TV channels. It also includes the standard Hulu streaming library, as well as Disney+ and ESPN+.
It’s a pretty killer deal. It’s available for new subscribers, or former subscribers who’ve canceled at least a month ago.
Hulu + Live TV Deal - Save $20 for 3 Months
For sports fans, Hulu + Live TV includes live access to local channels (access may vary by ZIP code), as well as ESPN, NFL Network, and more dedicated sports channels.
Among the cable channels offered with Hulu + Live TV are CNN, Comedy Central, Adult Swim, E!, BET, FX, HGTV, Food Network, MTV, VH1, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and many more.
The price goes up to normal after the first three months, but you can always cancel then or keep it if you like it enough to finish out the football season.
I’m a cord-cutter, as are many people these days. As a general rule I don’t miss cable, but whenever I grab a deal like this one I remember how nice it is to channel surf until I find something. It’s a different experience than scrolling through Netflix, and then Prime, and then HBO Max, until you find something to watch. Channel surfing lets you drop in on shows and movies that are already in progress. You can dip in for a few minutes and then bail when a boring part comes on. Or you might stumble on an old favorite movie that’s just starting and spend the evening watching it. It’s not something I need to do every night, but it’s nice every now and then.
If you’re into sports, or you just miss the experience of having live cable TV, this is a great deal to try out for a few months.
