Streaming services are making it possible for thousands to “cut the cord” with cable and enjoy television on their own terms for much cheaper. Users of smart TVs and streaming devices like the Roku have gotten used to familiar app-style channels offering content, but there are a few changes that have come to the streaming world recently. The following changes are shaking things up.
Hulu Is No Longer Free
For those that have relied on Hulu for free content and shows, the streaming service will no longer be offered for free. Hulu is still available for $7.99 per month with commercials of $11.99 without. This may be an annoyance for those that have gotten used to watching favorite shows and movies for free on Hulu. The fee is still reasonable compared to a cable subscription, though, so the change shouldn’t be too painful.
