Hulu has decided to cut the price of its cheapest streaming plan for a limited time. This particular plan includes commercials so you will have to put up with ads. According to a new report, Hulu is taking this step because it wants to further increase its subscriber base as it gears up to launch new original content this fall. Hulu did offer a similar deal for new subscribers in the fall last year.

Hulu previously charged $7.99 for its cheapest streaming plan which includes commercials. The same plan is now available for $5.99 per month. Bear in mind that this price cut is only for new and “eligible returning subscribers.”

Not only do the new subscribers get the first month free but they also lock in this limited time price for their first year. They will have to pay $7.99 per month thereafter. This special offer is available through January 9th, 2018 so you have until then to subscribe to Hulu at a reduced price if you haven’t already.

Those who want a commercial-free option will have to pay $12 per month for Hulu’s service. This also includes a live TV streaming service that Hulu launched a few months back.

This, coupled with a new marketing push by the company, should enable it to bring in more subscribers before its new original content hits.
