The streamer kept us waiting for quite some time, but at last, the Hulu Black Friday deal has returned. (Yes, we have the intel!)

Hulu Black Friday Deal 2022: The Offer

Hulu Black Friday + ABC's Good Morning America teamed up for a special deal: $1.99 per month (with ads), which is a whopping 75% off the standard price. New and eligible returning subscribers (who have not been Hulu subscribers in the past one month) are able to take advantage of the deal. If you're already a subscriber, we're sorry to inform you, but you do not have access to these savings.

Standard Hulu plan with ads for $1.99 per month. Add-on options like Disney+ and HBO Max will require an additional fee. Only available for new and eligible returning subscribers (who have not had Hulu for over a month). Deal ends on November 28 at 11:59PM PST.

Offers end at 11:59 PM PST on November 28. Should you want to cancel at any time throughout the year, you'll be able to do so without being charged any hidden fees. If you would like to add on offers such as Disney+, ESPN+ or HBO Max, to name just a few, an additional fee will be required. Do note that the Black Friday Deal is not applicable to the Disney Bundle.

What were the previous Hulu Black Friday deals like?

In 2021, the Disney-owned streaming service once again brought back its usual $1.99 monthly subscription fee for Cyber Monday. However, in 2022 they upped their game and marked down prices to under a dollar a month. (Yes, you read that right.) 

Considering a Hulu subscription usually costs $6.99 per month, that means last year's 99-cents-a-month Black Friday deal was a whopping 85% discount, or $72 off per year.

There is a small catch though. The deal is usually sponsored by advertisement, which means that all subscribers who signed up for the 99-cent deal last year had to sit through ad breaks in between watching their favorite show. This isn't a new thing though—Hulu's cheapest subscription already ($6.99) already includes 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.
