That title sums it up, and bears repeating. Yahoo View is another source for you to stream shows from across the pond, north of the border, and Down Under without paying a penny.
Back in the day, Hulu was a free, ad-supported streaming service. Then it added a subscription option that let you watch its shows with fewer commercials. Then Hulu went 100% subscription, became an SVOD service, and dumped the free service from hulu.com in Q3 2016.
What I didn’t know then that I know now is that Hulu partnered with Yahoo and put its free content on the advertising-supported Yahoo View (formerly Yahoo Video).
There is some duplication between the paid content on Hulu and the free content on Yahoo View. Needless to say, Yahoo View has fewer titles than are offered with either of Hulu’s subscription plans (one with limited commercials, the other with no commercials). But still.
And while Yahoo View has an app for Android and iOS devices, you can’t stream full episodes with it — just like Hulu’s free service prior to the launch of Yahoo View. You can only watch on the go with a Hulu subscription. But still.
The net net for Brit TV fans is 60+ shows (see below) that you can stream right now and for free on Yahoo View. Not too shabby, right?
