Hulu announced that it has increased its pricing for its live tv service. This pricing increase comes about a year after the streaming service last hiked its prices.
The pricing increases $10 per month than the current fees.
Effective December 18, the Hulu + Live TV with ad rises 18% to $64.99/month. The Live TV with no ads increases 16% to $70.99.
Hulu’s VOD-only plans will see no rate increase.
Currently, Hulu is the largest tv streaming service in the U.S. with 4.1 million subscribers (as of Oct. 3). The service offers over 65 live channels including the four big broadcast networks, original programming and their vibrant on-demand library. The live tv packages also include 60 hours of cloud DVR storage.
I use Hulu’s live tv service and I like it. But, with constant increases in prices, subscribers will soon be forced to make decisions about which streaming services they use.
Recently, Netflix announced a price hike and at a certain point consumers won’t be able to subscribe to more than three or four services.
This is where bundles with cable and cell phone companies will come into play for a lot of consumers.
