*For the next three months, #Hulu is hoping to attract new members with a new special deal that offers its ad-supported streaming plan for just $1 per month. Starting Friday, new and qualified returning Hulu users can sign up for a three-month subscription to Hulu with commercials for $1 per month.
That’s an 86% savings over the standard monthly fee of $6.99 for the US-only subscription.
The offer will be valid until May 27 at 11:59 p.m. PT.
Hulu’s new deal is reportedly scheduled for May 20, National Streaming Day, a fictitious holiday invented by Roku to commemorate the launch of its first streaming device in 2008.
In November, Hulu repeated its Black Friday offer of 99 cents/month for a year as part of its subscriber-acquisition plan.
Of course, the idea is for Hulu to grow its subscription base to attract subscribers away from Netflix, which is currently seeing a high turnover.
It was recently reported that Netflix lost 200,000 customers in the first quarter and is expected to lose another two million in the second.
