What is Hulu Plus?

When Hulu first launched, you could watch streaming shows for free. Then, they introduced Hulu Plus. Actually, with Hulu Plus, you now can access to a much larger library and “limited” commercials for free. Today, Hulu as a standalone service plan no longer exists, which means you cannot watch anything for free on Hulu. In this article, Apkafe will introduce you all about Hulu Plus.

1. The difference between Hulu and Hulu Plus?

The Richter Scale Blog

Hulu is a free streaming service that acts much like a teaser of Hulu Plus. You do not have to pay anything, but what you can watch is severely limited by the company. This makes it very difficult to binge-watch an entire show (all past seasons and episodes), but it still allows you to keep up with shows if you have recently missed an episode or two.

Hulu offers only a few episodes of each show, while Hulu Plus offers the full season and all past episodes. If you do not care about a full season and only want to find the latest episodes or the first few episodes of a show, you should start with Hulu. Then you candecide if you want to upgrade to the Plus version.

Another difference is that Hulu Plus supports more device than Hulu. In fact, it is supported on a a wide variety of devices, including Android, iOS, Kindle Fire, Windows and more. Meanwhile, Hulu is often limited to web-based streaming only.

2. How much is Hulu Plus?

Now, it has two main plans as well as some “add-on” features for full customization.

The Base Plan is $5.99 a month with a free trial. The $5.99 per month plan has limited commercials. Turning off Ads is an Add-on that makes it $11.99 a month.
