While Hulu does offer a good level of TV Everywhere support overall, not all of the networks including with the base live TV plan are listed above. Networks not listed do not currently offer TV Everywhere support through Hulu. This may be due to the network not offering TV Everywhere support in general, or Hulu having yet to reach an agreement to be a TV Everywhere provider for that particular network.

Supported Premium Network Apps

Hulu Live TV also provides subscribers with the option to bundle premium networks with their live TV package. Similar to the base plan, subscribers to any of these premium networks usually also have the option of accessing the network’s website and app.

Below is the full list of premium network apps and websites that Hulu Live TV subscribers can log in to with their username and password.

  • Max
  • Paramount+ with Showtime
  • Starz

Premium networks like Max and Paramount+ will require the Hulu Live TV subscriber to create an account for the streaming service before they can access the app. However, creating an account for Max and Paramount+ is additionally beneficial, as both services offer a lot more content through their own apps than what’s available through the Hulu app.

Supported Entertainment Add-on Network apps

Hulu Live TV also offers an Entertainment Add-on, which unlocks access to a selection of additional entertainment channels for $7.99 a month. Subscribers to the Entertainment Add-on can access the following network websites and apps.

  • Cooking Channel
  • Destination America
  • Discovery Family
  • Discovery Life
  • FYI
  • Lifetime Movies
  • Science

Supported Español Add-on Network apps

Subscribers to Hulu’s $4.99/month Español Add-on can access the following network websites and apps by signing in with their username and password.

  • ESPN Deportes
  • Discovery en Español
  • Discovery Familia
  • Universo

Getting Started With TV Everywhere As a Hulu Live TV Subscriber

If totally new to TV Everywhere, accessing a third-party network app or website is easy to do. While the process is generally the same for most network websites and apps, the exact instructions can vary from app to app and website to website.

log in to A Network website — example

While the process is mostly the same for all network websites, here’s an example using the A&E website.

  1. Visit the A&E website
  2. Click on Live TV
  3. Click Sign in
  1. Select Hulu from the list (or More TV Providers to search for Hulu)
  1. Log in to your Hulu (MyDisney) account using your email and password

Once authenticated, the Hulu Live TV subscriber will have access to the network website and all of the available content.

log in to A Network app — Example

Similar to websites, the process of logging in to a premium network app is largely the same for all apps. Again, here’s an example using the A&E app.

  1. Download the A&E app
  2. Open the app
  3. Click on Live TV

On mobile devices, the subscriber can simply choose Hulu from the list of supported providers.

On other devices, like smart TVs and streaming players, subscribers will most likely be asked to authenticate their subscription using a device with access to a web browser.

If prompted to log in on a different device, the smart TV or streaming player app will automatically refresh after authenticating the Hulu account on the other device. At which point, the subscriber will have access to all of the content the network provides access to.

TV Everywhere Limitations

While there are many benefits to using TV Everywhere support, there are some limitations as well. For example, profiles set up on Hulu won’t automatically be available when accessing a network app or website. Due to this, family members sharing a Hulu Live TV account will need to use the main account holder’s Hulu credentials to log in to a network app or website.

Another potential limitation is the number of simultaneous streams. While Hulu Live TV allows subscribers to stream on multiple devices at the same time, network apps will have their own limitations, which may be lower (or higher) than what a family gets with Hulu.

In spite of these limitations, TV Everywhere is a good feature to have access to, and one that’s worth checking out the next time you can’t find something to watch in the Hulu app.
