Sprint Will Bundle Hulu VOD Service With Unlimited Plans for No Extra Cost

AT&T has HBO. T-Mobile has Netflix. And now, Sprint has Hulu.

Sprint struck a deal with Hulu to offer subscribers with the wireless carrier’s Unlimited Freedom plan access to Hulu’s limited-commercials VOD package — normally $7.99 per month — for no additional cost, starting Nov. 17.

Under the offer, Sprint Unlimited customers will be able to access thousands of TV series and movies on Hulu, including originals like the Emmy-winning “The Handmaid’s Tale” and the upcoming “Marvel’s Runaways” as well as licensed programming such as “The Good Doctor,” “This is Us,” and “Atlanta” and older series like “Seinfeld,” “Full House,” “Family Matters” and “Boy Meets World.”

In addition, Sprint and Hulu are in talks about offering Sprint Unlimited customers an upgrade option for Hulu’s live TV service. Normally priced at $40 per month, the Hulu over-the-top TV bundle provides access to more than 50 networks including local stations in many markets.

The Sprint-Hulu pact comes after T-Mobile teamed up with Netflix to bundle Netflix’s standard streaming service for subs on unlimited family plans, and AT&T expanded its offer of free HBO to all unlimited-plan customers.

“We know people love watching TV on their mobile devices, so we’re making it easier than ever for Sprint customers to enjoy their favorite shows and movies on Hulu,” Tim Connolly, senior VP and head of distribution and partnerships at Hulu, said in a statement.

To sign up for the offer, starting Nov. 17, Sprint Unlimited Freedom customers can visit sprint.com/hulu. If an eligible Sprint customer has an existing Hulu with limited commercials SVOD plan they can merge it with their Sprint account and then all billing will go through Sprint.

Sprint’s Unlimited plans normally cost $60 monthly for one line, an additional $40 for line 2, and an additional $30 per month for lines 3-5. The wireless carrier currently is running a promo offering unlimited talk, text and data for $25 per month per line, with the fifth line free when you add five lines, with the special pricing applicable through January 2019. Sprint Unlimited plans also include a mobile hotspot with up to 10 gigabytes per month of data usage.
