It’s price-hike season!
Just a few weeks after Netflix bumped up prices on a bunch of its plans, it looks like Hulu will soon be charging more for its Live TV service.
The company has confirmed to us that it will be bumping the monthly cost of Hulu + Live from $54.99 to $64.99 as of December 18th — an increase of around 18%. The price increase will go into effect for both existing and new subscribers. The “Hulu (No Ads) + Live” plan, meanwhile, will increase from $60.99 per month to $70.99 per month.
To be clear, this price increase seemingly only impacts the plans that include live TV on top of Hulu’s on-demand library; there’s no word, currently, on any price changes for Hulu’s on-demand-only offerings.
Hulu + Live originally launched in May of 2017, initially costing $40 per month.
