Hulu, which has longed trailed rivals Netflix and Amazon Prime in subscription totals, appears to be trying to catch up with a holiday deal that would even make the Grinch smile.
For the next two days, new and returning customers can get Hulu’s Video on Demand service for just 99 cents a month for one year. After one year, the price will return to Hulu’s normal monthly rate of $7.99.

The 99 cent offer, which include Hulu’s base package of VOD programs (with limited commercials), is good until 11:59 p.m. Pacific time on Monday, November 26.
Hulu is not the only streaming venture looking to take advantage of consumers hunting for bargains during the Black Friday weekend.
PlayStation Vue, the live streaming service owned by Sony, is offering its Core programming package for $24.99 a month for one month. (The offer is also available until Monday.) The Core plan, which includes nearly 100 live channels, normally costs $49.99. After the one-month promotional period, the price will return to $49.99.
Curiosity Stream, the streaming service for documentary lovers (and smart people), is offering the rest of the year for free. After January 1, the price reverts to its usual $2.99 a month. The offer is available until November 30 for new subscribers.

Can you cancel after the 12 months at 99 cents?
Do they charge you the 99 cents per month or all at once as an annual charge?
Starz also has a pretty good deal going in the Google Play Store. Although I don’t think it’s exclusive to the Play Store, that’s just where I found it. It’s a 7-Day trial, then $5 per month for 3-Months & then the regular price of $8.99 per month.
Which is pretty decent since DirecTV charges $13.99 per month & Xfinity charges $11.99 per. Does anybody know of any good HBO or Showtime deals. I’m currently paying a whopping $17.99 per month for HBO on DirecTV & I really don’t watch it enough to justify that price.
I really only want Showtime for the show Shameless & maybe also, I’m Dying Up Here. But is that worth $13.99 per month? The funny thing is, out of all the video streaming services that I have.
Which include Netflix (4K), HuluPLUS (Commercial Free), Amazon Prime Video, Funimation Now, YouTube Red (Through Google Play Music) & now Starz. Funimation Now is the cheapest at $5.99 per month & the one I use the most.
Not a great deal. I tried to add $4 no commercial they said it would go from .99 to $11.00
