What is Hulu Basic?
Hulu Basic is the company’s simplest and most affordable streaming option. For $5.99 a month you’ll get access to Hulu’s entire catalog, but you will have to watch some ads as you stream. New subscribers can receive a free 30-day trial when they sign up.
Hulu plays host to a wide variety of content, including many current and classic TV shows. The library features hit comedies like “Nathan for You,” “Atlanta,” and “Letterkenny”; cartoons like “Bob’s Burgers” and “Animaniacs”; dramas like “Fargo” and “Helstrom”; gems from the ’90s like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Seinfeld”; Hulu originals like “Woke” and “PEN15”; and even films like “Trolls World Tour,” “Tesla,” “Centigrade,” and “Bombshell.”
You can also use Hulu to keep up with shows as they air. Episodes of network series like “Saturday Night Live,” “The Bachelor,” and many more are available to stream the day after they air live, minimizing your FOMO gap to just 24 hours. This is a huge advantage over Netflix where you have to wait up to a year or more for an entire season of a show to make its way to the platform.
