Past Seasons are on Hulu
While Hulu Live TV doesn’t carry OWN in its channel lineup, it does have every episode from the past 4 seasons of Queen Sugar on-demand through Hulu’s streaming library. While the current season isn’t available, it should arrive on Hulu soon. Hulu offers a 30-day free trial to their streaming library which is plenty of time to catch up on every episode of Queen Sugar.
There are two options when signing up for Hulu’s on-demand streaming library. They are:
- Hulu with commercials ($5.99): This is the least expensive plan Hulu offers. It provides access to the entire Hulu library, the on-demand Hulu feature providing various TV shows on network, cable, and all the Hulu Originals. And it’s got commercials throughout the shows. This plan also allows subscribers to receive 1-year of Hulu for the price of 10 months ($59.99) by switching to annual billing.
- Hulu – commercial-free ($11.99): For another $6 per month, you get all those movies and TV shows 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)
Hulu is supported on Roku, Fire TV Devices, Apple TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, iOS, Android, and more. See our review of Hulu for more details and information on this streaming service.
