Hulu Drops Monthly Price To $5.99

Hulu just doesn't seem to get it that the reason Netflix and Amazon are more popular is because no one likes to pay for commercials. Dropping the price to $5.99 a month for a year might bring in a few people but it also might piss off current users already paying $7.99 and $11.99.

Hulu has cut the price of its ad-included monthly streaming service from $7.99 a month to $5.99 a month in an apparent effort to catch up with rivals Netflix and Amazon. The reduced offer is only good for new subscribers, and the price will return to $7.99 a month after one year. (Hulu also offers an ad-free edition for $11.99 a month.)
