Below, we've put together a chart detailing exactly what each of Hulu's four offerings — Basic, Premium, Basic + Live TV, and Premium + Live TV — will get you for your dollar. There's also an additional breakdown of Hulu's add-ons that you can opt for to improve your streaming experience and give you access to exactly the content you want to watch.

How much is Hulu?

Hulu Basic costs just $6 a month or $60 a year, making it one of the cheapest streaming services on the market. College students can get this plan for even less, at just $2 a month, with a verified student enrollment. Hulu Basic offers ad-supported access to all of Hulu's on-demand programs. For ad-free streaming, you'll need to upgrade to Hulu Premium for $12 a month.

Subscribers who want live TV in addition to Hulu's on-demand lineup also have a few options. Hulu Basic + Live TV costs $65 a month and adds over 65 channels of live TV — including Food Network, Discovery, Disney Channel, ESPN, CBS, NBC, Fox, and more — to the basic on-demand plan. There's also an option for Hulu Premium + Live TV for $71 a month.

 

All four levels of service give you access to Hulu's entire catalog of on-demand shows and movies, including Hulu Originals like "The Handmaid's Tale" and "Palm Springs," current TV favorites like "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," and classic sitcoms like "Seinfeld."
