The year must be winding down as streamers are beginning to drop their prices as we move into Q4. This time, The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Hulu will be giving subscribers a break on its live TV streaming service. What used to cost $69.99 for Hulu+ Live TV will receive a markdown of $20, clocking in at $49.99.
Hulu is offering its biggest discount for Hulu+ Live TV, which includes subscriptions to Disney+ and ESPN+.
Making history, the 29 percent discount is the lowest Hulu has ever gone on its streaming bundle. For those interested in what the package entails, along with the streamer’s seemingly unending collection of movies, originals, and shows, subscribers will also receive 90+ live TV channels. Dropping the cherry on top, because a majority of Hulu is owned by Disney which also owns ESPN, subscribers will even have access to Disney+ and ESPN+.
With those still tuning into their television sets, users stand to lose ABC, ESPN, FX, and Freeform, pushing Disney to make the incredible offer to encourage its audience to cross over into the land of streaming.
The deal is only open for the next month, closing out on October 11, 2023, with the price climbing to $76.99 and moving beyond its original amount of $69.99. Hulu’s latest bundle deal will last new subscribers for three months, beyond which it’s expected that the price will jump up to $76.99.
Keeping a vigilant eye on the competition, Hulu’s new bundle deal not only comes as the end of the year rapidly approaches but also follows a butting of heads between Disney, Spectrum Cable, and Charter Communications.
With those still tuning into their television sets, users stand to lose ABC, ESPN, FX, and Freeform, pushing Disney to make the incredible offer to encourage its audience to cross over into the land of streaming. With all those channels neatly bundled under the green and white logo of Hulu, it’s the perfect place to catch up with your favorite programs from those networks.
Programming On Hulu
Carrying a slew of content, Hulu is one of the premiere destinations for quality shows and movies. The home for titles including The Bachelor, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, What We Do in the Shadows, Reservation Dogs, The Bear, The Kardashians, and more, the streamer also boasts a lineup of beloved long-running productions.
Included are Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The OC, One Tree Hill, Lost, Ally McBeal, Nashville, Veronica Mars, Desperate Housewives, Dawson’s Creek, and Freaks and Geeks.
Its team-up with ABC has seen Hulu delve more into the true crime genre with not only the investigative series 20/20 finding a home on the platform but also other paired productions such as The Ashley Madison Affair, Never Let Him Go, Death in the Dorms, and Wild Crime: Murder in Yosemite. And then, there’s Hulu’s original series including fan favorites like Pen15, Only Murders in the Building, Solar Opposites, This Fool, and Letterkenny.
The roll-out of Hulu’s new money-saving bundle comes just days following Disney+’s announcement that they would be giving viewers more bang for their buck should they switch to an ad-supported tier. An interesting move by the House of Mouse, the streamer is driving up its commercial-less rate to drive more folks to choose the ad-supported viewing experience. Because Hulu is in part owned by Disney, it looks like they’re trying to ramp up their subscription numbers to rake in some more dough before the year’s end.
