Hulu broadens offering with NFL Network and NFL RedZone
Hulu, the USA-based subscription video-on-demand service, has added the NFL Network and NFL RedZone to its offering ahead of the 2021-22 season.
Under the multi-year deal with the NFL, subscribers to the Hulu Plus Live TV service, which costs $64.99 per month, will have access to NFL Network, with NFL RedZone available for an additional fee.
NFL Network includes live preseason games, live NFL regular season games, studio shows including Good Morning Football, NFL Total Access, NFL GameDay Morning and NFL Now, as well as series such as A Football Life, NFL 360 and America’s Games.
The network is being added to the service of Disney-owned Hulu, which comprises more than 75 live channels, in time for the new NFL campaign, with the preseason starting on 6 August, and the regular season on 10 September.
For an additional $9.99 per month, users can add NFL RedZone, Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel, MAVTV Motorsports Network, TVG and TVG2 to their line-up.
NFL RedZone, which offers live cut-ins of games, will offer seven hours of live coverage every Sunday evening during the regular season. In addition, ahead of the 2021 season, it will offer replays from the 2020 season, available from 23 August to 8 September.
Hans Schroeder, executive vice president and chief operating officer of NFL Media, said: “We are excited to bring NFL Network and NFL RedZone to Hulu Plus live TV subscribers. One of our top priorities as a league remains broadening the distribution platforms for NFL content, and so we’re very pleased to bring our line-up of award-winning shows and live games to Hulu’s live subscribers.”
Other channels offered on the Hulu service include Disney-owned ESPN and ABC, TNT, TBS, Fox and sister channels FS1 and FS2, CBS and NBC.
