RCN offers Hulu as channel through STBs

Friday 20 May 2016 | 10:25 CET | News
US cable provider RCN partnered Hulu to enable its customers to watch Hulu programming as a channel through the same set-top box used to watch Live TV. Previously, RCN was the first cable provider to integrate Netflix into the channel lineup. Since then, more than half of customers have enabled streaming services like Netflix, YouTube & HBO GO on TiVo set-top boxes. Customers must subscribe separately to RCN Digital TV service powered by TiVo and have a subscription to Hulu. There are no additional RCN charges to access Hulu beyond the monthly subscription fee.
