Want to get one of the biggest streaming services on the cheap? Hulu is offering a nice saving for National Streaming Day – a price so low that you’ll barely even notice it going out of your bank account.
If you sign up for Hulu by Friday 27 May at 11:59pm PT, you’ll get three months for $1 per month. The offer is open to both new and returning subscribers of the platform in America.
This is for ad-supported Hulu, which typically costs $6.99 per month. This means that you’ll make a total saving of $17.97 off of the original price. Once your three months are up, you’ll be charged the regular price, but you can still cancel anytime.
Get Hulu for $1 per month
Is this a good deal?
Whilst $1 for three months is decent, the biggest price drops usually come around Black Friday. In 2021, you could sign up for 12 months for 99 cents per month.
Note that there is no discount on the ad-free version of Hulu – this is still at the full price of $12.99.
Some of the best shows on Hulu include Only Murders in the Building, The Handmaid’s Tale, Dopesick, Castle Rock, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and The Bachelorette. If you’re not certain about whether Hulu is the right streaming service for you, then check out our comparison of the best streaming services – which compares Hulu to the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime and Disney+.
Hulu is a US-exclusive streaming platform, so this saving is most beneficial for US readers. However, UK readers can still sign up for Hulu using a workaround that we discovered – with gift cards and a VPN. Find out how to do it in our article on watching Hulu outside of the US.
If you’re thinking about getting Disney Plus as well to watch shows like Moon Knight – then you could try another bundle. You can get both of these streaming services and ESPN+ for $13.99, not a bad deal if you’re looking at all these services combined at full price.
However, if you don’t mind ads (and don’t care about sports), then we recommend buying the ad-supported deal for Hulu and Disney+ separately.
