Sprint Adds Free Hulu Streaming For Unlimited Freedom Plan Subscribers

As for the details: you're getting access to Hulu's $7.99 per month basic service, which includes access to the streaming company's fairly extensive library of TV shows.

Verizon, the largest carrier in the USA, does not include any premium paid-content offerings with its service, though it does have its own go90 video service.

The companies also plan to soon offer Sprint unlimited customers the option to upgrade to Hulu's Live TV plan, which offers access to 50 different live TV channels plus a cloud-based DVR.

The promotion will apply to any current or new customers that are on the Sprint Unlimited Freedom plan.

Each line on a Sprint family plan would be eligible to get their own Hulu account, so a family of five could each create their own separate accounts.

In other streaming news, Hulu last week became the first U.S. streaming service to debut on the Nintendo Switch. Similar to T-Mobile's deal with Netflix and AT&T's agreement with HBO, the company will continue paying for Hulu as long as customers keep their service with Sprint. "What we have to do is have great partnerships where we can strategically put it inside our bundle". Hulu, meanwhile, recently partnered with Spotify on a student deal offering Spotify Premium and Hulu's limited commercial package for just $4.99 per month for college students. "Customers overwhelmingly are saying this is a relevant factor in their decision of who they pick for their carrier as well as staying with their existing carrier". Sprint is the fourth of the four major wireless carriers to make moves on the video front as video represents an ever-increasing share of wireless network traffic. Thanks to streaming services, consuming everything the small screen has to offer has gotten significantly easier, and in the process, increased our TV snacking time. That normally costs $39.99 per month; Sprint did not announce how much it would cost through the carrier.
