Hulu subscribers will soon be able to view premium content from Showtime on-demand as the online streaming service has announced that it will allow subscribers to take up Showtime’s streaming service for just an extra $9 per month. Subscribers already pay $8 per month for Hulu’s service, this way they can save a couple of dollars every month and enjoy on-demand content from both Hulu and Showtime.
As the race to capture cord cutters heats up and players like HBO move into online TV streaming, Showtime isn’t going to sit back and what all this happen.
The network announced a few weeks back that it too is jumping on the online TV streaming bandwagon and is launching a new standalone service called Showtime which provides subscribers with its entire library of content as well as live streaming of the linear channel for $11 per month.
Hulu subscribers will get all of that provided that they pay an extra $9 per month on top of their monthly subscription fee, they will however receive a 30 day free trial before they’re required to pay.
A confirmed launch date has not yet been provided but Hulu says that Showtime will go live sometime before July 12th, that’s when some of the network’s biggest shows premiere their new seasons.
