With carriage fees (i.e. sports) increasing, Hulu + Live TV is passing the costs onto its online subscribers in the form of an 18% monthly price hike to $64.99 — up from the current $54.99 — and set to go into effect Dec. 18.
Hulu’s online TV platform added 1.2 million subs in the most recent fiscal period to end with 4.1 million subs — 1.8 million more than online TV pioneer Sling TV.
The price hike is the the third in the past three years ($40 to $45 to $55) of Hulu’s online TV platform existence. The platform is now on par price wise with YouTube TV, AT&T TV and fuboTV. Sling recently raised its monthly fee to $30.
