In light of Netflix's recent announcement regarding a price hike on two out of three of their subscription plans, Hulu is offering a limited-time discount on their most basic membership plan. If you are a new or eligible returning subscriber on Hulu, you can score a $5.99-per-month, limited commercials deal for the first year plus any 30-day free trial. After that year, your plan will jump to the original cost of $7.99 per month, and you have until January 9, 2018 to redeem this offer.
This limited-time offer makes Hulu the most affordable streaming service out there, with Netflix as the first runner-up at $7.99 per month for their single-screen subscription. Hulu is expertly timing this promotion to celebrate the return of popular fall television series and its increased TV library. If you want to add HBO, Showtime, or Cinemax, you will have to pay extra.
Although Hulu's promotion started on September 21st, it's resurfacing as fantastic news since Netflix just announced a price increase from $9.99 to $10.99 and $11.99 to $13.99 for their middle- and top-tier plans. Currently, Hulu offers two plans - the $5.99 per month option with unlimited access to the Hulu streaming library and limited or no commercials and $39.99 per month option that lets users watch live TV online and unlimited access to the Hulu library.
