Why Now Might Be the Time To Consider Hulu + Live TV

Written by |

Are you cutting the cord from your cable company or shopping for a new live TV streaming service?

Hulu + Live TV has a limited-time offer that might be the streaming TV deal you need to finish out 2023.

In this article, we’ll look at the promotional offer that could please all members of your household.

Get Hulu + Live TV, Disney+ and ESPN+ for Just $50 Per Month

Hulu is running a limited-time promotion that will allow you to get its live TV product and The Disney Bundle for just $50 per month for three months.

This package includes a subscription to the follow four services:

  • Hulu’s live TV package
  • Hulu’s on-demand video streaming service (ad-supported tier)
  • Disney+ (ad-supported tier)
  • ESPN+

If you bought each of these as individual subscriptions, it would cost $96.

The promotional price is available for signups through October 11, 2023. This is significant because Hulu + Live TV has a planned price increase set to take effect on October 12 (more on that later).

To qualify for this price, you must be a new or “eligible” returning customer (defined in the fine print as someone who has not been a Hulu subscriber in the past month).

The $49.99 price is good for three months, then your subscription will auto-renew at Hulu + Live TV’s new price of $76.99 month. You can cancel this at any time. The cancellation will be effective at the end of your current billing period. Hulu does not offer refunds or credits for partial months.

This could be an ideal discount package for someone who is looking to get access to college football games for the rest of 2023. Hulu + Live TV provides most of the popular channels (ESPN, SEC Network, FS1, etc.) that broadcast the top games each week, and the included access to ESPN+ will unlock many other live games.


Price Hikes Are Coming Soon for Hulu + Live TV and Disney+

Be warned: Prices won’t always be this good for Hulu + Live TV or Disney+.

In fact, both services have an announced price hike that are set to go into effect shortly after this promotion expires.

Hulu + Live TV will be raising its price from $69.99 to $76.99 per month on October 12. This price includes The Disney Bundle.

Disney+ as a standalone product will increase the price of its ad-free subscription from $10.99 to $13.99 per month on the same date. The ad-supported version of Disney+ will remain $7.99 per month.

What Am I Getting with a Hulu + Live TV Subscription?

Hulu + Live TV is deemed the “Best for Content Blend” on Team Clark’s list of the best live TV streaming services.

The Walt Disney Company owns the majority stake of Hulu, and it’s able to put its many streaming assets to work together in a bundle that is unlike anything else on the market. The Hulu + Live TV subscription includes access to Disney+ and ESPN+.

But as a standalone product, Hulu + Live TV holds up well against competitors like YouTube TV and Sling TV.

It has unlimited cloud DVR storage, access to local channels, nearly 100 channels on the base package and an app with compatibility with most common streaming devices.

Final Thoughts

If you’re looking for a live TV streaming package to close out the final months of 2023, this Hulu offer could be the best deal for you.


And whether your household is into live sports, news, local channels, hit movies or children’s content, you’re likely to find something for everyone with The Disney Bundle included with your live channels.

At $150 for three months of service, you’ll be saving upwards of $125 from what you might have paid for The Disney Bundle and a live TV streaming service like YouTube TV during that period of time.

Just go into this knowing that by the time your promotional price expires, you’ll have to pay $77 per month to keep the subscription going.

So set yourself a calendar reminder for a few days before the end of your promotional period to allow you the chance to cancel before the full price is charged.
