Every day it seems like a streaming service increases its prices. Hulu is the latest to bump its price up, as the company has revealed that its streaming plans are set to increase by $1 a month.

The price increase is scheduled to begin on October 8, 2021, so you’ll get to enjoy your current Hulu pricing for a bit longer.

The ad-supported tier currently costs $5.99, so it’ll go to $6.99 after the 8th. In addition, the ad-free Hulu plans will jump from $11.99 to $12.99. It doesn’t sound like much, but an extra $1 per month adds up with all of the streaming services out there.

Fortunately, Hulu with Live TV and the bundle with Disney+ and ESPN+ will keep their current prices, so subscribers to those plans will be able to keep enjoying their content without spending more money. Of course, that could change at some point, but at least the price remains unchanged for now.

Interestingly, the price for the Disney+ bundle is only a dollar more than the ad-free Hulu plan, which makes that a far more attractive deal since you get a lot of extra content for only a bit more (though you’ll have to deal with ads). The ad-free version of the bundle is $19.99, which is still only a few dollars more than ad-dree Hulu on its own.
