Hulu has quietly begun offering access to HBO Now at $4.99 monthly for a limited time. HBO’s over-the-top video service normally costs $14.99 monthly. The special rate is valid for six months, after which normal subscriber rates apply.
Hulu, which is co-owned by Walt Disney, 21st Century Fox, Comcast and Time Warner (parent of HBO), began offering HBO (in addition to Showtime and Cinemax) last summer for the normal fee.
HBO Now is also available to Hulu’s online TV service.
Earlier this week, Hulu partnered with music streaming service Spotify offering a combined subscription for $12.99 monthly – down almost 28% from the normal $17.99 fee.
