Is Hulu worth subscribing to in 2021? With a price below one iTunes movie rental each month, it is a very tempting option for many users. I subscribe to Hulu alongside cable because it offers the best way to watch many of my favorite shows.
I’m still considering switching to Hulu + Live TV and ditching cable, though with the DVR add on I’ll be spending a decent amount each month.
Paying for the ad-free version of Hulu is worth it since you’ll likely get sick of seeing the same ads over and over again. Being able to watch your favorite shows without worrying about DVR issues and clunky on-demand set-top boxes is worth the price.
One real value of Hulu many users appreciate is when it offers shows with all of its seasons on-demand. For example, Hulu offers seven seasons on demand of Homeland. Binging for hours on a single show can make Hulu worth it rather than subscribing to Showtime or another premium channel just for that series.
Ultimately it will depend on how you watch and what you watch if Hulu is worth it, but if you get the value of one iTunes movie rental a month out of it, the version with ads is a very good value.
Considering how much time we are all spending in front of screens these days, Hulu is an affordable way to expand your digital library for about the price of a fancy coffee each month
