It’s Black Friday season and, like clockwork, Hulu’s Black Friday deal has arrived. While there are always plenty of deals to be had at this time of the year, this is arguably one of the best in streaming, and one which shouldn’t be missed by any homes looking to save on the cost of watching Hulu shows and movies.
Disney increased the price of its streaming services this year, resulting in the monthly cost of basic Hulu rising to $7.99 per month. That’s just for the ad-free plan. For those looking for an ad-free viewing experience, the Hulu (No Ads) plan price increased to $14.99 per month.
Right now, it is possible to get a basic Hulu subscription for just $1.99 per month when signing up through this link. While not quite as impressive as last year’s 99 cents promotion, this Black Friday 2022 deal still results in a saving of 75% when compared to the normal cost of the Hulu (With Ads) plan. So far, there is no deal being offered for the No Ads plan, and that’s not expected to change.
As is always the case with Hulu’s Black Friday deal, the discount applies to the first 12 months of a subscription. As long as the account holder remains subscribed, they will only pay $1.99 per month for basic Hulu for the next 12 months, resulting in a total of $23.88 for the entire year. To put this price into perspective, that’s the equivalent to just three months at the normal monthly rate.
As is often the case with these deals, the subscription will automatically renew at the usual higher rate after the last discounted month. In addition, Hulu is not offering a free trial with this promotion. When signing up to Hulu under normal circumstances, all With Ads subscribers typically get a 30-day free trial to test out the service. However, and although this promotion is aimed at new customers, it’s open to returning customers as well. As long as the previous subscription was canceled more than one month ago, there should be no major issues with signing up for the current deal while using the same email address and payment method.
For those not ready to make a decision just yet, Hulu’s $1.99 per month promotion is available until 11:59 PM PST on 11/28/22. In other words, you have until the end of Cyber Monday to avoid missing out on this unmissable deal.
