If you’ve been considering signing up to Hulu, now might be the time. The streaming service is currently running a promotion which brings the cost of a Hulu (With Ads) subscription down to just $2 per month.
Hulu offers both on-demand and live TV streaming services. For the basic on-demand service, Hulu charges $7.99 and $14.99 per month. The $14.99 rate is for the ad-free plan while the cheaper $8 subscription includes ads.
It is this $7.99 subscription that has now dropped down to just $2 per month, resulting in a saving of around $6 per month. The discounted price applies to the first three months, and works out to be a saving of around $18 for those that remained subscribed for the full three-month period.
Unlike some other promotions, there’s nothing required to take advantage of the cheaper monthly subscription. New users can simply head over to Hulu and sign up as usual. It should be noted that this is a deal designed to celebrate National Streaming Day (May 20) and will only be available through May 27.
For those wanting to save on more than one subscription, it is also possible to add Disney Plus when signing up to Hulu for an extra $2 per month. Basically, it is currently possible to sign up to both Hulu (With Ads) and Disney Plus (With Ads) and only pay $4 per month for unlimited access to both streaming services.
The Disney Plus promotion is more of a long-term deal that’s been on offer to existing Hulu subscribers for some time now. Still, that doesn’t change the fact that, following the latest limited-time Hulu price drop, it is possible to sign up to both services for less than $5 per month for the first three months.
As is always the case with these promotions, automatic billing is in effect. In other words, subscribers will need to manually cancel one or both subscriptions if they want to avoid paying the usual higher rates at the end of the discounted period.
