Sinclair Broadcast Group’s digital networks have been added to the Walt Disney Company’s general entertainment service Hulu as part of a comprehensive deal that dates back to July.

The channels — Charge, Comet, Tennis Channel and T2 — were added to the Hulu with Live TV package this week. Sinclair first announced the channels were coming to Hulu last July.

Charge, Comet and T2 are available in the base Hulu with Live TV package, which costs $76 per month and includes access to the ad-supported tiers of Disney Plus and ESPN Plus. The Tennis Channel is offered through an expansion pack of channels that costs an extra $10 per month.

It was not clear if two other channels — TBD and The Nest — will be offered to Hulu subscribers in the future. Both channels stream for free on Sinclair’s own service, STIRR.

In addition to those channels, Hulu with Live TV offers most ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox affiliates as well as national cable channels like CNN, Fox News, ESPN, MSNBC, E!, Bravo, TBS, TNT, Comedy Central and Paramount Network.
