Sprint to include Hulu for Unlimited Freedom customers

Sprint, Altice USA Set Wireless Partnership

In a falling-dominoes response to wireless/streaming tie-ups among competitors, Sprint (S +1.2%) is bundling free Hulu access with its Unlimited Freedom plans for new and existing customers.

No catches, no strings attached, no hidden surcharges and no special requirements.

Under the offer, Sprint Unlimited customers will be able to access thousands of TV series and movies on Hulu, including originals like the Emmy-winning "The Handmaid's Tale" and the upcoming "Marvel's Runaways" as well as licensed programming such as "The Good Doctor", "This is Us", and "Atlanta" and older series like "Seinfeld", "Full House", "Family Matters" and "Boy Meets World".

Yesterday, we told you that Wave7 Research had published a report, stating that Sprint would offer free Hulu to its unlimited customers. But hey, beggars can't be choosers, and alongside unlimited data, talk, text and Hulu streaming at HD quality, Sprint subscribers also get a 10GB monthly mobile hotspot allowance for their 60 bucks.


Users can sign up for the deal on Friday by going to sprint.com/hulu from their Sprint phone and following the outlined steps.

The deal will help Sprint try to keep pace with T-Mobile which offers Netflix as well as AT&T and their DirecTV Now option that can be bundled with their service. As for Sprint's Unlimited Freedom plan, it's listed at $25/month for the first four lines, with a fifth line being free.

Each line on a Sprint family plan would be eligible to get their own Hulu account, so a family of five could each create their own separate accounts. Hulu's plan normally costs $7.99 per month. The offer will be available to new or returning Hulu subscribers only, according to the terms and conditions page. Hulu, meanwhile, recently partnered with Spotify on a student deal offering Spotify Premium and Hulu's limited commercial package for just $4.99 per month for college students.

Samson did not disclose terms of the Hulu deal, but did say the partnership would run for "multiple years".
