The new reality show, The Parent Test, follows 12 families as they are put under the microscope to compare the many styles of parenting. Based on an Australian series, the show looks at the different models of parenting, form child-led to helicopter parents. As the parents are put through different situations that put each model to the test, they discuss and learn about the hot-button topics that compare their approaches and share their experiences along the way. The shared goal is to raise happy, healthy children, no matter how conflicting their opinions. Discussions are moderated by host Ali Wentworth and parenting expert Dr. Adolph Brown.

This package also provides access to the entire Hulu library; the on-demand Hulu feature providing various TV shows on network TV, cable, and all the Hulu Originals. There are commercials throughout the shows.
- Hulu – commercial-free ($14.99): This plan provides Hulu on-demand without commercials. (Due to network arrangements, Grey’s Anatomy, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and How To Get Away With Murder will always have commercials)
