One of the most preferred services in the is Hulu, which featured both paid as well free subscription plans for the users came with the decision to stop the free services in 2016. Hulu partnered with Yahoo for delivering exclusive free content to the users. The new platform called as Yahoo View was released in the month of August in 2016, immediately after Hulu planned to terminate its free subscription plans and switch to premium subscription plans only.
Previously, Yahoo had a video watching platform by the name Yahoo Video which was later refurbished as Yahoo Screen in 2011 but the collaboration with Hulu has led to the site getting morphed into Yahoo View with a much wider variety of content for the viewers. While some users believe that the free services of Hulu are just over, Yahoo View is waiting for them with a lot more.
A Step Toward Providing Entertainment Dose
It was high time for Yahoo Screen to make necessary modifications to keep up with the promises that were made. A cash crunch led to Yahoo Screen not deliver up to the expectations of the viewers. The service could not fetch enough revenues for the lucid running and in such a scenario, Hulu choosing Yahoo for its content distribution possesses a lot of benefits for both the viewers and the company too to bring it back to form from turmoil.
The collaboration with Hulu provides Yahoo View with the rights for distributing a larger amount of content. With Hulu ditching its original free subscription memberships and started charging fee, a majority of the viewers would turn to View so as to gain access to the free content, legally as well. Both Yahoo and Hulu have been sharing a strong bond since ages and this has resulted in this awesome new streaming service called Yahoo View.
A Lot of Visual Treat For Users
Gradually the streaming service would start featuring the viewers with a larger variety of content in TV, anime, Korean series, movies, full episodes, video clips all for free. Episodes from a large number of streams like ABC, NBC, Fox would be available for viewing by the customers eight days after the original release date.
The video clips and TV Series episodes would be available for viewing just the day after their release and in perfect stream quality. The viewers can also get access to the GIFs or images shared by different users relating to a specific show on the Tumbler page. Yahoo View also features a ‘beyond the episode’ section where the viewers get access to all these additional content.
