Hulu has sent out an email alerting its subscribers to an upcoming increase, allowing them to decide whether or not they want to renew their plan next month or cancel before the upper rate takes effect. Consistent with the corporate, consumers can pay a dollar more per month for the cheaper plan with ads and the costlier plan that doesn’t include ads.
Hulu will increase its price by one dollar starting on October 8, the corporate has revealed. This may push the essential plan’s price to $6.99/month, one dollar but Disney Plus’s newly increased monthly rate. The ad-free premium plan, meanwhile, also will increase by one dollar to $12.99/month.
Hulu is one of the streaming services offered within the Disney+ bundle, including ESPN+ for sports fans. The monthly rate increase isn’t a surprise — Hulu’s Live TV offering saw an increase round the start of the year of $10, pushing it to a starting price of $65/month.
Assuming you’re a bundled user, you won’t experience an increase — the Disney+/Hulu/ESPN+ combo will remain priced at $13.99/month, which becomes more appealing with the newest increase. You’d pay an equivalent amount because of the bundle if you signed up for Hulu’s basic plan and Disney+ individually.
As always, Hulu subscribers are ready to pause or cancel their memberships if they’re not curious about paying the upper rate. The increased subscription fee will automatically be added to subscribers’ accounts starting on October 8, so if you’re not concerned about saving the dollar, you don’t get to do anything.
