Hulu's Cheapest Streaming Plan Is Even Cheaper Now

Hulu Drops Price of Entry-Level Plan to $5.99 Monthly for Limited Time

The company best known for leading the streaming video content game in the United States is using the price hike to support a $7 billion content creation budget for next year.

This isn't a permanent price cut, but rather a limited-time promotion as the streaming service attempts to lure in new customers (and bring back old ones) ahead of the fall 2017 TV season. The same plan is now available for $5.99 per month.

The competition between two major streaming services is heating up.

Variety has a report about the latest price decrease, which happens to come on the heels of Netflix raising its prices for its mid- and high-tier plans just a few days ago. As long as you sign up before January 9th, 2018, you'll pay the promotional price of $5.99 a month for 12 months before the price reverts to $7.99. Its 4K streaming plan also increased from $11.99 to $13.99. 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. We're approaching a TV subscription tipping point, and one of these days, consumers will have some serious decisions to make about which services they value the most. The service also includes DVR storage.

Hulu quietly introduced the $5.99 monthly offer for the limited-ads plan a little more than two weeks ago (on September 21), and began sending marketing emails to previous subscribers starting late last week about the offer.

Correction, 6:10 p.m.: The story misstated the launch date of Hulu's offer. In what appears to be a happy coincidence for Hulu, news of the price drop is making the rounds just as Netflix raises the price of both its standard and premium plans.
