Hulu is finally going to give its subscribers an option to get rid of those pesky ads while watching current episodes of their favorite TV shows. The company has launched a new option that will offer commercial-free video streaming option for $11.99 a month.
The company stated:
People who are already signed up for the current $7.99 a month option, with ads, can switch to the new commercial-free subscription program for an extra $4 a month. The new $11.99 service comes as Hulu is expanding into offering more movies, including a new multi-year agreement to stream movies from the Epix cable TV network.
