How to Get Hulu for Just $6 — Yes, Really

Castle Rock - Sissy Spacek, Andre Holland

Gas, groceries, rent… it seems like the cost of everything keeps going up. Well, Hulu is bucking that trend.

The streaming service announced that it’s changing its price structure, effective February 26. The best part? Hulu’s most popular option, its ad-supported basic service, which gives viewers access to shows as long as they watch commercials, is dropping from $8 per month to just $6 — making it one of the cheapest streaming options available.

The (almost) ad-free viewing tier remains unchanged at $12 per month. (Why “almost”? The streaming rights to some content dictate that ads must run with them.) The only price increase comes for Hulu+Live TV, which lets you stream live programming on broadcast and cable channels — that jumps from $40 to $45 per month.
