Cutting the cord does not mean staring at a blank wall. There are plenty of TV lovers out there watching TV, without the expense of a monthly cable and/or satellite bill. Many of these viewers have opted out of that hefty bill, in exchange for something more affordable, like Hulu Plus.
Hulu Plus provides unlimited streaming of TV shows and movies, to your computer, your smartphone and tablet, and your big-screen HDTV. Many HDTVs and Blu-ray players now come packing Hulu Plus support right inside the device, or you can add a little something like a $50 Roku box.
However, before you go telling off that pay provider, you may want to test out Hulu Plus and see what’s up. That’s where today’s Hot Deal comes in. According to our friend, the CNET Cheapskate, Hulu is currently offering a 2-month free trial of Hulu Plus. Two months. The typical trial time is a week, so this is certainly a nice bump. It should also give you the opportunity to see if you can live without that channel lineup.
Hulu Plus offers access to recent and classic TV shows, all on-demand. There are new episodes of popular shows, such as Family Guy, New Girl, Modern Family, Glee, and much more, as well as classics like The X-Files and Alf. Hulu Plus also has movies and original series, so you probably won’t run out of things to watch anytime soon.
That said, you’re going to run out of time—to redeem this offer, anyway. There’s no word on when Hulu will pull the plug on this, but we’re guessing that it won’t last forever. Just know that to sign up, you will have to submit your credit card info. If you forget to cancel before your free trial is finished (and you will!), they will automatically charge you the $7.99 monthly subscription fee.
