If there was ever a time to snag a Hulu yearly subscription, this Hulu Black Friday event is it. Last year, the Disney-owned streaming service once again brought back its $1.99 monthly subscription fee for Cyber Monday—an incredible deal in its own right—but the 2021 offering does that deal one better, marking down prices to under a dollar a month. (Yes, you read that right.) 

Hulu—which is home to TV favorites like Only Murders in the Building, Nine Perfect Strangers and The Handmaid's Tale, not to mention a wealth of movie options (these Christmas movies on Hulu will definitely get you into the festive spirit)—usually costs $6.99 per month. That means this year's 99-cents-a-month Black Friday deal is a whopping 85% discount, or $72 off per year. What are you waiting for?!

The 99-cents-per-month offer is available through 11:59pm PT on Monday, November 29 via the link (opens in new tab). Unlike most streaming service deals, which only apply to new customers, this offer is available for both eligible returning customers (who have not been Hulu subscribers in the past month) and those who were just joining the platform.

However, there is a small catch. The deal is sponsored by advertisement, which means that all subscribers who sign up for the 99-cent deal will have to sit through ad breaks in between watching their favorite show. This isn't a new thing though—Hulu already has an existing ads deal where customers pay $6.99 to watch TV shows with ads. Meanwhile, the ad-free subscription is priced at $12.99 per month.

In 2020, the popular streaming service, which launched in 2007, recorded a whopping 36.6 million subscribers—a 28% increase year on year. Much of the rise has to do with the incredible range of content on the platform: as well as award-winning series The Handmaid's Tale and Little Fires Everywhere, Hulu is home to full seasons of Family Guy, Law & Order: SVU, The Golden Girls, and much, much more. 

Getting all of that for just 99 cents is a bargain, to say the least!
