Fewer streamers

I wrote the other day about a couple of streaming services that increased their user base. But not all services are increasing. Hulu+Live TV lost 100,000 subscribers.

While Hulu added subscribers and reached a total of 39.1 million subscribers by the end of the quarter, Hulu with Live TV dropped 100,00 subscribers and ended the quarter with 3.7 million, down from 3.8 million in the previous quarter.

According to the report, Hulu added subscribers overall, but lost on the live streaming service end of things. So, yes, there are more streamers, but fewer streamers when it comes to Hulu+Live TV.

While this is bad news for that particular segment of streaming, Hulu overall is doing well. And, sister company Disney+ did increase subscribers. Overall, it was a good report for Disney.

I don't understand why Hulu+Live TV lost subscribers, though. It's a good live streaming service. I wonder if enough Hulu subscribers came to think like I do that a live streaming service isn't necessary. Or, maybe they found Sling TV or another cheaper service more to their liking. I don't know what the reason might be. It doesn't really make sense.

Regardless, overall streaming is up, as more and more people enjoy a Streaming Life.
