Hulu and YouTube Making Some New Waves In Streaming TV

A couple of interesting tidbits on the world of TV and for cord-cutters among us:

Both Hulu and YouTube are bringing streaming TV services in 2017, according to news reports.
"This means our viewers will be able to enjoy live sports, news and events all in real-time without a traditional cable or satellite subscription," said [Hulu CEO] Hopkins. "We're going to fuse the best of linear television and on-demand in a deeply personalized experience optimized for the contemporary, always-connected television fan."
