Thankfully the price increases do not affect anyone on the Hulu Plus Live TV plans. It also does not affect the prices of the Disney Plus-Hulu-ESPN Plus bundle. It will remain at $13.99 a month with ad-supported Hulu and $18.99 a month with Hulu with no ads. Since ESPN Plus also recently raised its price by $1 a month, this makes the Disney Plus-Hulu-ESPN Plus bundle an even better bargain than before.
Hulu currently has 42.8 million subscribers, all based in the US. The current $5.99 a month price tag for the ad-supported version is one of the best deals in streaming for an individual service. It will be interesting to see if Hulu loses some subscribers after this change. This is the first change in Hulu’s prices since early 2019.
