Aerojet Rocketdyne announced on Thursday that it plans to move its rocket engine manufacturing from Sacramento to Alabama by the end of 2018, and that 1,100 of the current 1,400 jobs at the facility will be relocated or eliminated. Rocketdyne moved its headquarters from Sacramento to El Segundo last year.
Hulu’s Live TV service will cost $39.99 per month with ads and access to the online streaming platform’s library of on-demand content, according to sources cited by TechCrunch. Hulu is also considering an add-on package to its live TV service that will include a DVR feature with up to 200 hours of programming storage.
