Strap in, folks. Hulu with Live TV is about to get more expensive starting Dec. 18. Here's the deal:

  • Hulu with Live TV is increasing to $54.99 a month — a $10 increase.
  • Hulu with Live TV and no ads will hit $60.99 a month — also a $10 jump.

The reasoning, Hulu says? Here's how they put it in a blog post:

Price changes are never easy to stomach, and we know that many people don't watch live television year-round, so we've made it easy for Hulu subscribers to switch back and forth between our plans to best suit their needs. If you love college football, choose Hulu + Live TV during the season, then switch to one of Hulu's less expensive on-demand plans when it's over. If you enjoy most of your TV on demand but really want to watch live election news, just switch to Hulu + Live TV for a few months.

All that said, we realize many Hulu customers want even more choice and control over their live viewing experience, so we're actively exploring ways to provide additional, more tailored live TV options to you in the future. We'll keep you posted on those efforts as they progress.

Again, the new prices go into effect Dec. 18, 2019, for new subscribers. Existing subscribers will see their bills change on the next cycle after that date.
