Business: Hulu Offers Ad-Free Option

Good news for any of you who use Hulu, the video streaming service now offers an option to skip all of the advertisements. Hulu recently launched their ad-free option which is available for $11.99 a month, $4 more than a normal Hulu monthly subscription. Hulu has said that its 10 million customers “will maintain their existing subscription, but will have the choice to switch to the commercial-free option at any time for an additional $4 per month.” They did point out, however, that they will continue to offer the free version of the service which includes advertisements.

Hulu’s CEO Mike Hopkins was quoted as saying, “At Hulu, we pride ourselves on listening to our customers and giving them the best possible experience. Many of our customers have asked for a commercial free option, and so today we are excited to introduce just that. Providing more choice for consumers is fundamental to the Hulu experience, in addition to an array of choices in content and devices, our customers can now choose to watch with or without commercials.”

    I don’t know if going add free is really worth four dollars, but I suppose it depends on how long you watch shows on hulu.
