Ever wanted to watch live TV on your iOS device? Thanks to Hulu, you can!

That’s because the company today introduced its Hulu with Live TV app. The app will fulfill a range of functions — from the ability to watch more than 50 live and on-demand TV channels and record them to your Cloud DVR to tracking features, designed to let you manage your shows, movies, and networks.

With the app, users can customize their viewing preferences, including creating up to 6 personalized profiles for members of your household, and training Hulu to better recognize the kind of content that you’re interested in watching.

You can also use the app to watch concurrent streams on multiple devices, easily track and record games from your favorite sport teams with the My Teams feature, and more.

The app is free to download for the fourth-gen Apple TV, as well as iPhone and iPad. However, to use it you’ll have to pay the $39.99 per month price tag to access the content. An option for no commercials on on-demand content will set you back $43.99 per month, while other add0ons can let you storage 200 hours of material or fast-forward through ads.

Users can try out Hulu with Live TV for one week before having to make up their mind whether or not to pay to subscribe. Right now, the actual live streaming component isn’t working since the service hasn’t been turned on — but expect that to change very soon! In the meantime, you can use the app to access the existing $7.99 per month Hulu content.
