The Walt Disney Company’s streamer Hulu has added two new football channels to its live television service.

The channels, NFL Network and NFL RedZone, are making their debut on the streaming service ahead of the upcoming professional football season.

The NFL Network will be available to subscribers as part of the Hulu with Live TV base package, which includes more than 70 other cable networks and costs $65 a month.

NFL RedZone, on the other hand, will be accessible through a sports add-on package that is available for a separate fee on top of a regular subscription. The cost of that package is $10 a month, about $1 a month cheaper than comarable packages offered by competing streamers Sling TV and YouTube TV.

In addition to the two sports channels, Hulu with Live TV offers access to a handful of other sports-centric networks, including ESPN, Fox Sports 1, CBS Sports Network, NBC Sports Network (NBCSN), the Olympic Channel, the Golf Channel, ESPN 2 and Fox Sports 2.

Hulu is available on most popular smartphones and tablets as well as on Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV (Google TV), Roku and Xfinity Flex devices.
