Hulu Plus Price Drop: Now Cheaper Than Netflix, Roku Compatible

By Updated on

It’s official, the subscription service for Hulu Plus has now dropped from its original price of $9.99 down to $7.99, which makes it cheaper than Netflix that are currently offering a similar service for $8.95.

It was speculated back in October that there would indeed be a price cut from Hulu, when Peter Kafka said the ABC/NBC/FOX-owned service would drop its price to $4.95, which almost seemed to good to be true.

Unfortunatly, the price did not dip that low but Hulu are giving some nice gestures along with this price drop. If you have already subscribed to the service at its previous preview price, Hulu say that they will cover the cost with a refund of the difference in your next billing cycle.

If you have not yet subscribed, but are thinking about doing so, you can take advantage of the one week free trial that they are offering too.

Oh, and one more upbeat byte of information; Roku’s hardware is now supported with Hulu Plus which means that this is currently one of, if not the best service of its kind out there at the moment.

    Netflix is also $7.99 and Netflix is free from commercials – Hulu Plus still forces you to watch commercials and charges you to watch them. What's up with that?
