“Our live TV viewers watched more than 24 million hours of news in the first quarter of 2018, so clearly they are hungry for news content,” said Tim Connolly, Senior Vice President at Hulu. “We’re happy to partner with a post-cable millennial-focused network like Cheddar to pack even more value into our live offering and give our younger viewers access to a greater, more diverse selection of live news options.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Hulu and to bring our news to its 17 million subscribers,” Sternberg said in a prepared statement.

Cheddar has been expanding the distribution of its content, as of late. In April Cheddar announced the debut of its new headline news channel, Cheddar Big News, and the launch of it and Cheddar financial news on the Apple TV-ready streaming service YouTube TV. 

The network plans to launch the channel on Sling TV and Philo by the end of June saying in a statement the channels will be added “within weeks.”
