Hulu promos discounted $5.99 entry tier to its streaming library

And just like for its two previous price hikes, people are expected to drop off from the service. This isn't a permanent price cut, but rather a limited-time promotion as the streaming service attempts to lure in new customers (and bring back old ones) ahead of the fall 2017 TV season.

Beyond Hulu's entry-level option with limited commercials, the company also offers a No Commercials streaming plan for $12 per month. That price will stay the same for a year, then will revert to the regular $7.99 per month price.

Hulu's offer is worthy to be taken into consideration, especially after Netflix announced last week it will be bumping up the price of its standard plan from $9.99 to $10.99 a month and premium plan from $11.99 to $13.99 a month. In case you don't want to deal with them, the ad-free option will cost you $11.99 a month. Its entry-level service is still priced at $7.99.

Definitely a good PR move here, especially after they have been on a streak of good news, following their Emmy win for "The Handmaid's Tale.' The service also continues to line up massive wins in their content library, getting exclusive rights to 'This is Us, ' and nearly the entire back catalog of 'TGIF" shows like 'Boy Meets World, ' and 'Family Matters'.

Watch out: Hulu offers similar offers around September yearly.
