The price of Hulu’s live TV service is going up to $54.99, Hulu announced today. This price change will take effect on December 18th, 2019 and will affect all Hulu with live TV customers. At this time the price for on-demand commercial-free and Hulu with limited commercials is not going to change.
“Price changes are never easy to stomach, and we know that many people don’t watch live television year-round, so we’ve made it easy for Hulu subscribers to switch back and forth between our plans to best suit their needs. If you love college football, choose Hulu + Live TV during the season, then switch to one of Hulu’s less expensive on-demand plans when it’s over. If you enjoy most of your TV on demand but really want to watch live election news, just switch to Hulu + Live TV for a few months.” Hulu said in a statement sent to Cord Cutters News.
Hulu says this new price “better reflects the substantial value of Hulu + Live TV and allows us to continue offering all of the popular live news, sports and entertainment programming included in the plan.”
Hulu says current Hulu with Live TV subscribers will see their price go up by $10 a month on their next bill after December 18th, 2019. New subscribers who signup on or after the 18th of December will pay the new price.
The question now is if Hulu’s subscribers stick around after a $10 price hike.
