You can get three months of Hulu for just $6 today

Another day, another invented party. In honor of National Broadcasting Day on May 20, a holiday that I also recently discovered existed, Hulu is basically giving away two months of its ad-supported plan for free.

Let me explain. Until May 27 at 11:59 p.m. PT (or May 28 at 2:59 a.m. ET), you can subscribe to Hulu’s ad-supported plan for just $2 a month for the first three months. Typically, the basic plan costs $7.99 per month or about $24 for three months, which means you’re saving $18, or essentially getting about two months free. Furthermore, the deal is not only available to new subscribers, but also to recurring subscribers who canceled at least a month ago.

If you don’t mind a few ads from time to time, the entry level subscription is similar to the ad-free tier. Both grant members access to thousands of movies and TV shows, including future seasons of futurama and Bear when they are released this summer. You simply won’t be able to download content for offline viewing like you can with more premium plans, even if the ad-free tier grants you access to the same catalog and allows multiple people to stream content simultaneously.

Just be sure to mark your calendars if you don’t want to pay full price at the end of the promotion period. Your subscription will, after all, return to the normal rate of $7.99 per month after the three-month window.
