What is the Difference Between Each Hulu Plan?

Lauren Forristal, Ben Bowman

Hulu is an excellent option for anyone who wants to stream TV and movies, but it can be confusing to understand what Hulu offers.

The term “Hulu” can refer to two different things:

  1. An on demand video catalog of movies and TV shows (essentially similar to Netflix or Disney+). This includes movies and series like “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Only Murders in the Building,” “Castle Rock,” and “Nine Perfect Strangers.”
  2. A TV service with dozens of live channels (similar to YouTube TV or Sling TV). This includes access to as many as 97 channels. Subscribers to this service also get access to the Hulu on demand catalog.

How Many Hulu Plans Are There and What Are They?

The least expensive plan is $6.99/month and it goes up from there. Removing ads or adding live channels will increase the price.

Ad-Supported Plan ($6.99/month)

The least expensive version of Hulu is the ad-supported plan. That gives you access to the on demand library but not live TV. Any movies or shows you watch will be interrupted by commercials.

No Ads Plan ($12.99/month)

You get full access to the on demand library, and eliminate ads entirely at this higher rate. There is no live TV at this level. If you are interested in the on demand version (with or without ads), Hulu makes it easy with a 30-day free trial.

Hulu + Live TV ($64.99 or $70.99/month)

This version is more expensive because you are adding live television to the service. This would allow you to stream live sports on channels like ESPN, FS1 (Fox Sports 1), NFL Network, och TNT. Subscribers can add NFL RedZone for an additional fee.

Other channels included in the base package are A&E, ABC, CBS, CNN, Comedy Central, Food Network, Fox, Fox News, FX, HGTV, NBC, Nickelodeon, TBS, TLC, Travel Channel, USA Network, och VH1

Every Hulu Live package includes the on demand library at no extra cost. At $64.99/month, you will have to watch ads during the on demand movies or shows. For an additional $6/month, you can go ad-free. You will still see ads on live programming, no matter how much you pay.

If you’d like to try Hulu + Live TV, you can get a 7-day free trial.

Hulu Bundles

The best way to save on Hulu (in any form) is to bundle it with Disney+ and ESPN+. This gives you three powerful services at a $6 discount. The least expensive bundle is $13.99/month — that gives you all three services (but ads on Hulu). You can eliminate Hulu ads if you pay $19.99/month for the bundle. If you already subscribe to Disney+ or ESPN+, you can still add the bundle and save.

If you want to bundle the services and include Hulu’s Live TV option, that’s $72.99/month. That version includes ads in Hulu’s on-demand library. If you pay another $6/month, that eliminates those ads.

Hulu Live TV Add-Ons

If you go with a Hulu Live TV option, you can add premium channels like Cinemax, HBO, Showtime, och Starz for $9-$15 each. There are also channel bundles available.

Which Plan is Right for You?

Since each Hulu plan offers a free trial, we’d recommend sampling Hulu + Live TV for 7 days to see if you like what it has to offer. If you already have a preferred live TV provider, it’s worth trying the on-demand-only version of Hulu for 30 free days.
