Hulu v/s SonyLIV

Hulu v/s SonyLIV    

With the advancing of the OTT apps, It would be very tough for you to conclude any of them.

So here we will compare two OTT apps that will help you in concluding the best for you.

Hulu

Hulu OTT app is an American subscription video-on-demand service fully controlled and majority-owned by The Walt Disney Company. Hulu is merely available within the US (with a knock-off service in Japan; you cannot even catch on in Canada) and recently hit 28 million subscribers. Hulu has some exclusive shows that are cultural phenomena—Seinfeld and South Park—as well as exclusivity on many current networks and cable-only shows, like past seasons of Rick and Morty and Fargo. Hulu features a pretty thorough list of its own supported devices, split by people who support the new Hulu interface that came along to assist Live TV, or the "classic" version.


Features:

  • Stream 65+ top Live and On Demand TV channels including sports, news, and entertainment
  • Get unlimited access to the largest streaming library (ad-supported). Enjoy full seasons of exclusive series, current episodes, hit movies, Originals, kids shows, and more
  • Watch on 2 screens at the same time

Most of these contents are behind a paywall that restricts them only to paid subscribers.

  • Latest international shows.

  • All live sports and TV channels.

  • Live events of WWE.


  • Blockbuster Indian movies.

Now let's compare both the OTT App's and see which one is better to use.


Hulu:

  • Hulu’s on-demand streaming library included.
  • 50 hours of cloud DVR storage
Cons:
  • Expensive-add ons.

  • Must upgrade DVR to fast forward through commercials

  • Only two screens at once unless you upgrade



SonyLIV:

  • Sony Liv allows a wide variety of genres available, including music channels.

  • Both SonyLIV’s website and mobile app have simple interfaces and can be operated without requiring expert knowledge.

While Sony LIV is one of the leading Internet TV providers in India, with an extensive offering of live sports and an easy-to-use website and mobile app.
