Hulu lowered their monthly subscription cost from $7.99 to $5.99 for the first year. That's down from $7.99 a month. This is for a plan that has commercials (we highly recommend splurging a few extra bucks a month for the "almost" ad-free version of the service, it's well worth it). Those who are subscribed to the standard plan will have to pay $1 more per month starting in November while the premium plan would cost $2 more a month. Its 4K streaming plan also increased from $11.99 to $13.99. Those now using the service will have to continue to use the same price tier to watch all their Wings reruns. Earlier this year, in April the $28.5-billion 21st Century Fox launched Fox Now, a streaming service that offers all its five networks - Fox, Fx, National Geographic, Fox Sports and Fox News. Likewise, the company has a new Live TV beta for $40 per month, which combines a live/on-demand TV service with Hulu's standard streaming collection. In addition to all of the original content, Hulu has also licensed rights to popular shows both old and new, such as How I Met Your Mother, Glee, M*A*S*H, 30 Rock, Black-ish and the shows from ABC's TGIF lineup in the 1990s. It started in September, before Netflix's price increase.
