The major virtual MVPDs continue to fatten their bundles, with Hulu announcing the rollout of eight CW local stations.
With new affiliate deals for the broadcast network, CW locals are now available Hulu with Live TV subscribers in Philadelphia, San Francisco, Atlanta, Tampa, Detroit, Seattle, Sacramento and Pittsburgh.
Hulu Live users have had access to on-demand CW programming since September.
The CW is jointly owned by CBS Corp. and Warner Bros. Entertainment—the latter of which is owned by Time Warner Inc., which is minority stakeholder in Hulu.
According to Cord Cutters News, Hulu now has access to an industry-leading 454 broadcast network local stations in the U.S.
Meanwhile, fuboTV—which has a heavy focus on local sports programming access—announced the addition of regional sports network SNY, the official home of the New York Mets, to its New York area programming lineup.
The addition of SNY comes right on Opening Day for Major League Baseball. With MSG and YES also in the fold, fuboTV has access to all three New York RSNs.
