HULU is having a $24 for the year sale...is it worth it?

I'm not sure if they have enough programming for me to warrant it. Let me know anything you like that you watch on HULU, whether it be movies, series, old, new, etc.

Hulu with ads is terrible IMO. They run the same five commercials.

by Anonymousreply 1November 24, 2022 2:00 AM

does the $24 per year have ads? I've no clue.

by Anonymousreply 2November 24, 2022 2:06 AM

Probably w/ads. But $24 for a whole year? Why not try it? There are some good old TV shows on there. And a lot of good FXX shows.

by Anonymousreply 3November 24, 2022 2:10 AM

I tried it with the ads and hated it. Who wants to pay anything to watch ads?

According to their site, you can add Disney+ (no ads) for $2.99/month.

Hm, r5. That gives me pause. I recently stopped drinking and passing out every night, so having more channels (for not a lot of money) appeals to me.

[quote]According to their site, you can add Disney+ (no ads) for $2.99/month.

That's what makes it worth it. I had recently cancelled my renewals for Hulu and Disney+ that would have occurred in December, because of the price hikes. Earlier this week, I signed up for Hulu at the discounted price, using a different email and credit card, and the Disney+ add-on. So $5 a month for both.

I'm also adding the 99 cents a month (for two months) deal on Roku to temporarily add some premium channels. I haven't seen any of the Tom Holland Spiderman movies, so now I can see all three on Starz for just 99 cents.

The ads drove me nuts.

by Anonymousreply 8November 24, 2022 3:35 AM

Hulu ads are not that annoying at all, they're short and sometimes they don't even play when they're supposed to and it's like you're using the ad free version

It's worth having for Homeland alone.

For $2/month, suck it up and deal with the commercials. Get up off your fat ass for a minute to refill your drink or take a piss. Jesus!

I took the deal for my parents, my sister and myself.

Don’t worry. You’ll come back soon.

I upgraded to the plan without ads ($14.99) a few months ago because I was finding more things to watch on HULU than Netflix or Amazon. As mentioned above the ads are annoying and clicking the mute button wasn't cutting it. I watch mostly anime on HULU.

The one annoying thing about HULU is they don't retain your watch history. While you are watching a show it show up under the "Keep Watching" heading but when you're finished it's no longer listed.

I have Hulu bundled with Spotify for $9.99/mo. and pay $80/year for Disney. Maybe this is a better deal.

by Anonymousreply 15November 24, 2022 3:40 PM

I switched from Hulu with ads to Hulu without ads over the summer after I decided I wanted to binge watch an old TV series. The commercials were killing me.

Up until then, I had been subscribing to YouTube TV to get my local channels and DVR functionality. I switched to the Hulu Live package that features no ads and includes Disney+/ESPN (plus DVR). Hulu Live costs a bit more than YouTube TV but the extras - and no ads! - make it worth it. I am definitely watching Hulu a lot more now.

These aren’t the network commercials some of us grew up watching in the 70s/80s! The commercials these days will rot the brain.

This was a Hulu ad favorite for a while. There were only so many times I could stomach watching this bitch talk about finding love again.

I know they're free and you get what you pay for, but I wish Pluto and Tubi would at least fix their ads so they don't just play randomly.

The only thing I've watched with any regularity on there was Atlanta. Which is over. And reservation dogs which is only eight episodes a year. I spend more time looking for stuff on Hulu than I spend watching stuff on Hulu so I'll probably dump it

by Anonymousreply 23November 25, 2022 3:04 AM

The number of ads on some of these platforms is mind boggling. HGTV runs 3 minutes of content and then 5 minutes of ads. I watched an old episode of "Family" on Tubi and it took almost 70 minutes to watch with commercials.

For $24 for the year what do you have to lose? That price is like a sore dick, you can’t beat it.

I also did the Hulu special. I just canceled before it lapses. Hulu won’t let you take advantage of this new special if you are an old customer, so I have to use a different email address to take advantage of this current special

Get the ad-free version and pay by month. Watch everything you like; then put the subscription on pause for a few months to let new content appear. Take your subscription off pause and watch stuff for another couple of months till you have seen everything you like. Then pause again, and so forth.

About twice a year Hulu accumulates enough content I actually want to watch. Even though I'll get thru it the content I want in a month, the ads quickly become annoying. I'd rather pay for the no ad version.

FYI, Disney+ has a bundle that includes Hulu and Disney+ for $19.99/mo, no ads. It also includes ESPN+ with ads but who cares. The offer is good thru Dec 8, 2022 when the price increases.

What I like is that they show you exactly how long the commercial break is going to last, so you can kind of plan what you'll able to accomplish in the time allotted.

What happens if I add the $1.99 channels but then cancel Prime? I don’t need Prime anymore and will not renew. Will my channels just disappear mid-month even though I paid for the hole month?

Oh no, I missed it. I went after midnight and the deal was already gone. Now I refuse to pay $7.99 for Hulu or $10.99 for Disney Positive when I could’ve gotten both for $5.99! It’s just the principle of it. So it’ll be a year before I watch The Chip N’ Dale Murders or Hocus Pocus 2 when I get the deal next Black Friday.
