About Hulu

Hulu is a good and affordable streaming service that offers many of people’s favorite movies and shows. Its most notable offer is much content from local channels like ABC, NBC, Fox, and more, old and new.

Also, Hulu drops episodes of a season of a show episode by episode, rather than dropping a whole season when all of the episodes are out, which is appreciated by many people. Viewers will be up to date with their favorite shows.

Recently, its amount of original content is rising, but the original amount will take a long time to reach the numbers that Netflix or Amazon Prime Videos have.

But, the price is what makes it very competitive, at just about $6 per month. That is a lot cheaper compared to other services like Netflix at about $9 per month and Amazon Prime Video at about $13 per month.

The caveat is also the $6 price tag. To reach that price, Hulu will serve viewers ads occasionally. If you want an ad-free experience, you will have to upgrade to the ad-free plan to about $12 per month.

If you want to comfortably go cordless with your TV channels, Hulu offers Hulu Plus Live TV at about $65 per month. Again, this is the price with ads. You will need to spend 71$ per month to remove the ads.

Aside from the ads, another caveat is that the UI is not easy to navigate with tons of content categories, which can cause slight confusion. Also, Hulu doesn’t support HDR content yet.

Hulu also lets viewers add premium add-ons to their accounts, such as HBO Max, SHOWTIME, CINEMAX, and STARZ. They will need to be purchased separately for viewers to enjoy their content.
