Hulu drops price of its entry-level plan

Hulu drops price of its entry-level plan

In August this year, Disney announced it was moving out of Netflix when its deal with the streaming service expires in 2019.

However, Netflix's price changes didn't affect its lowest-cost plan - the $7.99 per month tier that allows users to stream on one screen at a time.

While Netflix announced last week that it's raising the price of its standard subscription plan, Hulu is offering new subscribers a price cut as of September 21. That's down from $7.99 a month.

Trump says he doesn't believe feud with Corker hurts tax-reform chances
Trump's criticism of the Tennessee Republican drew a response in which Corker referred to the White House as an "adult day care". He also knew the call was being recorded, telling the reporter that his staff was recording it, "and I hope you are, too".

Less than a week after Netflix announced a price hike for some of its plans, Hulu announced it's going in the opposite direction. And to further entice you, they are offering a $2 discount on their less expensive plan for new subscribers or those who are thinking about re-signing with the service. It also increased the price of its premium plan. This includes some previous Netflix mainstays like '30 Rock.' There's no doubt that Hulu is betting big on being the new back catalog service, whereas Netflix seems nearly entirely focused on being a content creator moving forward, likely out of pure necessity.

In Hulu's case, though, the price drop isn't permanent - it's promotional. Hulu's commercial-free option is still available for $11.99 per month, while the live TV and on-demand streaming service, Hulu With Live TV, is available for $39.99 per month.
