Those signed up to T-Mobile’s best wireless plan are getting Hulu for free. Following the availability of Apple TV+, Netflix and MLB.TV, the addition of Hulu marks the fourth streaming service to become available to Go5G Next customers. 

There are two basic Hulu plans to choose from, Hulu and Hulu (No Ads). As the names suggest, the standard Hulu plan is an ad-supported plan while Hulu (No Ads) offers ad-free access to most of the streaming service’s library

Beginning on Jan. 24, those signed up to T-Mobile’s Go5G Next package will be able to get a standard Hulu (With Ads) subscription for free. Considering the standard Hulu (With Ads) plan costs $7.99 a month, this works out to be a saving of around $95 over the course of a full year. If also taking advantage of the other streaming benefits T-Mobile offers, customers can now save around $35 a month, or $400 a year, according to T-Mobile. 

As the Un-carrier, we go beyond delivering the incredible service that customers expect from America’s 5G leader. T-Mobile customers get the best value and the best entertainment streaming bundle in wireless — just for being customers, without having to pay a penny more,” said Mike Katz, President of Marketing, Strategy and Products at T-Mobile. “In addition to Apple TV+, Netflix and MLB.TV, Go5G Next customers now also get a subscription to Hulu … all four on us. That’s over $400 a year in streaming benefits, from the very best services in the market, all included in your plan at no extra cost.”

As the Hulu subscription is being added as a plan perk, this is something that isn’t currently set to expire. In other words, as long as the customer remains a Go5G Next customer, they will continue to get Hulu for free. 

That said, the terms of the deal do make clear that customers will need to manually enable the complimentary subscription through their account each year. Otherwise, they may find they are automatically converted over to a paid subscription at $7.99 a month.
