Hulu TV – The next generation streaming service from Walt Disney Company
These days, the cable operators are pretty much frustrated due to the low business of increased online streaming services. Many households have started cutting down the cable connection, saying they get better TV-shows on online platforms. One such popular online streaming service like Netflix is the Hulu, from the Walt Disney Productions.
Hulu has won the hearts of 28 million US subscribers just with its demanding TV shows, notably the award-winning “The Handmaid’s Tale.” But what makes Hulu different from the cable connection is that you don’t have to be worried about finding a new cable operator when you move. So that means you can enjoy your favourite shows in your comfort time even when you are traveling. Sounds cool, right!!!
Not just the ease of hassle-free contract and installation charge, Hulu Tv offers world-class premier shows. Setting up the benchmark so high for online streaming video service providers. A channel gets a high TRP rating based on the quality of the show they air.” The Handmaid’s Tale” in Hulu TV is a perfect example of the perfection of art and drama.
The Handmaid’s Tale is an American drama web series hosted in Hulu TV, based on the novel of the same by Margaret Alwood. Like Game of Thrones, there are ardent numbers of followers for Handmaid’s Tale. The story portrays the sacrifice and survival of a class of women – Handmaids, who were forced to have ritualized sex. A master class performance by Elizabeth Moss is what you can see in the show.
The Handmaids Tale has won many awards for its best performance and realistic scene composition. The show has received Primetime Emmy Award for its outstanding drama series. Though the show is a visual depiction of Margaret Atwood’s novel, the drama has shown a hundred percent justice to what you can see in her book. After the second American civil war, waning fertility leads to the government of the USA to force fertile women to become “handmaids.” These handmaids are a class of women who will act as slaves to their superiors/ upper classes.
Elisabeth has played a mind-blowing performance as one such handmaid. She was forced to have ritualized sex with Commander Joseph Fiennes to deliver a child for his wife, Yvonne Strahovski. The dark composition with a stunning background score can break your nerves. The series is a political thriller that puts light on the attacks and sufferings of woman’s rights and freedom of sex.

Internet speed for Hulu Live TV
