Yahoo View is a new streaming service that builds off of the partnership between Yahoo and Hulu to bring all of the free content that is on Hulu over to Yahoo. That means soon Hulu’s free streaming site, which is available to PC users, will be shut down.
Yahoo View offers the last five episodes of ABC, NBC, and FOX shows to cord cutters 100% free very similar to what Hulu’s free web service offered. The catch? Every show is delayed 8 days from the date they were originally broadcast. If you are a patient cord cutter who prefers savings over convenience, then this is a great option. If you grew accustomed to next-day viewing… you may want to consider an over-the-air DVR to record your favorite shows when they air on the broadcast networks so you can watch whenever you like.
“As a TV junkie and Tumblr fan myself, I’m personally excited to have one place that brings together the best of free TV and Tumblr fandom,” says Jess Lee, vice president of lifestyles product at Yahoo. “Yahoo View is our first step towards creating a powerful community TV-watching experience, but it’s really only the beginning.”
“Video is an important part of Yahoo’s strategy and we’re committed to delivering the best digital video content to our users. To date, we’ve streamed amazing experiences across sports, finance, and news,” says Phil Lynch, vice president and head of media partnerships. “This partnership with Hulu is a natural extension of that strategy, bringing the best of TV and entertainment content to our lifestyle vertical.”
Yahoo View is available now on Yahoo’s website. You will also be able to access Yahoo View on a mobile web option for watching on your phone, and it even is planning an upcoming mobile app for Android and iOS.
