Why does my Hulu subscription have commercials?
Why does my Hulu subscription have commercials?
Summary
Commercials are included on Hulu in order to reduce the monthly subscription price of the service. We try our best to tailor advertising to your interests so that the advertising you see on Hulu is relevant and useful to you.

A Hulu subscription offers what no other streaming content service on the market today can: the best of TV, full episodes, complete seasons, as well as hit movies, Latino programming, and kid-friendly content. We have found that by including a modest commercial load with the Limited Commercials plan, we can keep the price for Hulu subscribers under eight bucks, while still providing users with access to stellar shows on the devices of their choice. While not all shows on the Limited Commercials plan have commercial breaks, such as SHOWTIME® content, it's expected that shows exclusive to Hulu will include commercials.

 

We're continually working to tailor the ad and commercial experience to your interests in an effort to make the advertising you see on Hulu more relevant and useful to you.

 

If you want to watch Hulu without commercials, we offer a No Commercials plan for $11.99/month. Our Limited Commercials plan, available for $7.99/month, includes a modest amount of commercials. It’s easy to switch your plan at any time by visiting your account page. For more information about the No Commercials plan, please visit here.
