Royalty fans can tune in to the Smithsonian Channel on Hulu and YouTube’s live TV services just in time for Sunday’s interview with Queen Elizabeth II. In an announcement sent to the press, the Smithsonian Channel revealed that it is now part of the channel lineups on Hulu with Live TV and YouTube TV.
“We are thrilled that Hulu with Live TV and YouTube TV subscribers now have access to our award-winning programming,” Smithsonian Channel President Tom Hayden said.
Hulu with Live TV subscribers get an added bonus. The Smithsonian Channel now accepts their log-in credentials as part of the TV Everywhere program. That gives Hulu with Live TV subscribers access to the Smithsonian Channel website full content library. It also unlocks full episodes and other premium content in the Smithsonian Channel apps for iOS, Android and Amazon Fire TV.
Elizabeth, Queen of the Britons
The Smithsonian Channel’s announcement comes just in time for Sunday’s broadcast of The Coronation. The documentary chronicles the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. The first televised event of its kind, more than three hundred million people around the world tuned in for the broadcast.
More than a dry accounting of royal history, The Coronation features an in-depth interview with the Queen herself. She provides behind-the-scenes details about the once-in-a-lifetime event and her role in it. [Spoiler: no scimitars were lobbed.]
Royal watchers can watch the broadcast live or set the DVRs to the Smithsonian Channel on Hulu and YouTubeTV to watch later.
