Hulu Plus Drops Their Price to $7.99 a Month

Hulu Plus which is a service offered to stream your favorite television shows (current and past episodes) to multiple devices has dropped their price from $9.99 to $7.99 a month.

If you are a current subscriber, on your next billing cycle, Hulu will credit you $2 for every month you paid $9.99. Hulu is also offering a 1 week free trial for new subscribers. Current subscribers will also be getting a $2 credit for that since there was not a free trial when the beta first came out.

Below is the official email that current subscribers are receiving from Hulu Plus.


Thanks for being a subscriber to Hulu Plus during our preview. We’ve been hard at work refining our existing applications, expanding the device coverage, and extending our content lineup. We’re excited to announce that today, Hulu Plus is officially launching out of preview to anyone in the U.S. for just $7.99/month.

Since we’re now offering Hulu Plus at a lower price than during the preview, your subscription fee has been lowered to $7.99/month, and on your next billing cycle, we’ll also automatically credit your account with $2 for each month you’ve been a subscriber. In addition, we’re now offering a 1-week free trial for all new subscribers, so we’ll be issuing you an additional $2 credit since the free trial wasn’t in place during the preview.

We’d also like to offer you the chance to earn more free time on Hulu Plus by helping us spread the word about the service. For each friend who uses your referral to join Hulu Plus, we’ll give you two additional weeks for free, up to 20 weeks total. Each of your referrals will also receive two weeks free on their first month’s subscription. For more details on the program and to invite your friends, please visit
