Hulu has been a true savior for cord cutters. While other services have gone more in the direction of original content, Hulu’s continued its strategy of maintaining partnerships with traditional networks to get streaming rights after initial broadcasts.
Notably NBC, ABC and Fox all have stakes in the service, so these traditional players often make it easy for you to stream their shows right after they air, which hasn’t been the case across the industry.
On top of everything, Hulu has created some truly great original shows that easily compete with what the network backers are putting on cord-based television. If you want a ton of shows to wade through and choose from, Hulu is the service for you.
For the weekend of Sept. 22, Streamline is recommending two shows that are now on the Hulu platform: “Atlanta” and “Top of the Lake: China Girl.” Donald Glover created “Atlanta,” and recently won two Emmys for the show for directing and acting. He became the first black person to win an Emmy for directing a comedy. The show was arguably one of the best of 2016.
“The Handmaid’s Tale” also won numerous Emmys, including “Outstanding Drama Series.” Elisabeth Moss and Ann Dowd won for their acting roles on the show.
Note: This list only includes shows that debuted their most recent episode less than a year ago. Much like the main list, it prioritizes newness.
And here are a dozen other recommended shows currently on the service:
“Broad City,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Claws,” “Community,” “Fargo,” “Horace and Pete,” “Party Down,” “Peep Show,” “Please Like Me,” “Review,” “Rick & Morty” and “Seinfeld.”
