“With these Español and Entertainment add-ons — and our addition of the Starz premium add-on last week— we’re giving Hulu with Live TV subscribers access to even more of the content they care about so that they can build their own personal, complete TV experience all in one place, and at an affordable price,” Hulu said in a blog post.
