Hulu lowers subscription price

February 26, 2019
In mid-January, Netflix announced they would be increasing the price of all their monthly subscription plans. Hulu’s answer to this move? Changing their own prices. But… lowering them. Well, one plan's prices at least. The streaming service has announced that as of February 26th the price of their basic plan will decrease from $7.99 a month to $5.99 a month. The basic plan includes Hulu’s full streaming library and is on an ad-supported system. So, while you’ll need to sit through commercials - like the good ol' days - it’s not a bad price for an awesome library including ‘Seinfeld’, ‘South Park’, ‘Lost’ and a ton of incredible Hulu original programs like ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’, ‘Castle Rock’ and thousands of other shows & movies. The no-ads plan will remain $11.99 per-month and the price of Hulu + Live TV (which includes dozens of network & cable channels like ABC, Discovery, ESPN and more) has actually increased from $39.99 a month with ads to $44.99 a month and the plan with no ads has gone from $43.99 to $50.99. While the decrease doesn’t come close to beating its Black Friday sale - which had a 1 year subscription of the basic plan for only 99¢ a month - you can’t complain about saving a couple buck per-month, ay? Will you take advantage of this new plan? What’s your favorite show or movies to watch on Hulu? Let us know your thoughts on all this below!
