For $9.99 per month, Hulu’s Live TV subscribers can add NFL RedZone, Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel, MAVTV Motorsports Network, TVG and TVG2 to their live TV line-up. Football fans can tune into NFL RedZone every Sunday during the regular season to watch host Scott Hanson deliver seven hours of live football action.
