Hulu today is selling its $7.99 a month Video on Demand service for just $2 a month for three months as part of a National Streaming Day sale. The sale began today and will run until May 27, 2023. (National Streaming Day, an industry created holiday to promote online viewing, is actually tomorrow but Hulu is getting a head start.)

The $7.99 plan, which includes ads, is Hulu’s least-expensive offering. (Hulu also has a VOD plan with no ads for $14.99 a month.)

To qualify for the $2 deal, you must be a new subscriber, or one who has not been a Hulu subscriber in the past month. That means if you were thinking of canceling your current subscription, and re-subscribing to get the discount, it won’t work.

In addition, subscribers to the Disney+ Basic plan with ads are not eligible. However, you can add the Disney+ Basic ads-included plan for $2 a month for three months when you sign up for Hulu’s promotional offer.

You will be charged the regular monthly price for Hulu and/or Disney+ if you don’t cancel prior to the end of the three-month promotion.

Hulu has a mix of licensed TV shows, movies, and original programs such as The Dropout starring Amanda Seyfried, and Dopesick starring Michael Keaton.

Here is a list of Hulu’s planned programming additions for next month:
