Sprint just announced that it’ll be partnering with Hulu to offer free access to Hulu’s limited Commercials plans for customers on Sprint’s Unlimited Freedom plan beginning on Nov 17th.
This Sprint / Hulu partnership clearly seems like an attempt to counter similar promotions from T-Mobile, that currently bundles free Netflix with its unlimited plans, and AT&T, that has free HBO included with its unlimited service. (Meanwhile, Verizon users get… free Go90?)
As for the details: You can get access the basic service of $ 7.99 per month, which includes access to the streaming company’s fairly extensive library of TV shows. in keeping with the fine print, you’re limited to “one Hulu limited Commercials plan per eligible Sprint account,” and it appears like you’ll be got to manually choose in for the offer when it starts on Nov 17th on Sprint’s web site.
Sprint’s Unlimited Freedom plan prices $60 a month for a single line and includes unlimited 1080p HD video streaming although, like unlimited plans on every other carrier, there’s a soft cap of data you’ll use during a month, once which Sprint will deprioritize your data use during times of congestion. (In Sprint’s case, that’s 23GB per month.)
