The streaming platform has revealed new pricing for its services.
Hulu has announced updated pricing options for its various subscription plans. As part of the change, the company's basic service will now cost $2 less per month while its Live TV service will cost $5 more per month.
The updated pricing is set to go into effect on February 26 for new subscribers. In addition, existing users will be subject to the new fees starting with their next billing cycle after February 26.
Here's a full rundown of Hulu's current plans and new pricing options:
Hulu Standard Plan (Now $5.99 per month, previously $7.99) - The company's basic ad-supported streaming option offers access to more than 85,000 episodes of on-demand TV, along with thousands of movies and Hulu Originals like The Handmaid's Tale, Marvel's Runaways, Future Man, and Castle Rock. Likewise, Hulu is the exclusive streaming home to shows like ER, Lost, King of the Hill, 30 Rock, Family Guy, Seinfeld, South Park, and more.
Hulu No Ads Plan ($11.99 per month, no change in price) - This option offers ad-free access to the same selection of content as the standard plan. With that said, about a handful of titles do still include a quick ad before and after each video.
Hulu + Live TV Plan (Now $44.99, previously $39.99) - Hulu's live TV service includes access to the standard plan's on-demand content, along with more than 60 live sports, news, and entertainment channels. Likewise, users can also opt to upgrade to the Hulu No Ads on-demand plan, or add premium channels like HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, and Starz for additional fees.
