Hulu announced these price increases back in August, so there was plenty of warning ahead of time. In addition, and to offer a way to save before the price increase took effect, Hulu launched a limited-time deal that lowered the cost of its live TV package to just $49.99 a month for the first three months.
Not only has that deal now come to an end, but the price of the base live TV package has also increased to $76.99 a month, up from the previous $69.99 a month cost. While those signing up to Hulu Live TV from today will pay the higher rate, existing subscribers won’t see their price increase until their next billing cycle.
With the cost of the base live TV package having now increased, so has the variations of that plan. For example, Hulu also offers a Live TV Only package that removes basic Hulu, Disney+ and ESPN+, and the cost of this plan has now increased from $68.99 to $75.99 a month.
Likewise, Hulu’s live TV package with ad-free Hulu and ad-free Disney+ has also now increased from $82.99 to $89.99 a month.
At the new prices, Hulu Live TV is once again one of the more expensive options for streaming live TV over the internet. However, the inclusion of basic Hulu, Disney Plus, and ESPN Plus does help to lower the overall monthly cost of streaming for homes that would be subscribed to these additional subscriptions anyway.
