Hulu Drops Price - With Commercials


Hulu can't get the traction it needs with new subscribers, so they are offering a bit of a discount if you sign up or come back. They've only dropped the price by $2.00 - but it's nice to see them trying to gain subscribers. The new $5.99 price is for the lowest tier - that includes commercials. Still, it's much cheaper than your cable bill and probably has most of the TV that you want to watch anyhow. It's region-locked to the USA so we can't get it up here, but for you south of the 49th, it's not a bad way to go.

Last month, Hulu announced that it had budgeted around $2.5 billion for original programming in 2017. Hulu’s biggest breakout original so far is The Handmaid’s Tale, which won the streaming service its first Emmy (and several Emmys) last month. But the company has more originals on the way, including a Stephen King anthology series with J.J. Abrams attached to executive produce. As for non-original content, Hulu recently added a slew of hugely popular sitcoms, like How I Met Your Mother, M*A*S*H, and Glee.
