Hulu truly delivers when it comes to its Black Friday deals. The streaming service to deliver every year, we've seen it offer new and eligible returning customers a rate of as little as 99cents a month, and we expect to see similarly competitive promotions in the 2023 sale with its Black Friday Hulu deals.
With Black Friday falling on November 24 in 2023, we expect to see the Black Friday streaming deals begin to drop in the couple of weeks leading up to the official date. Hulu itself will likely launch just days before, with the past two years seeing it initially release its offer via Good Morning America viewers before making any discount widely available to snatch up.
It's also worth noting Hulu often offers bonus add-on deals and savings that it doesn't so widely publicise. In 2022, you could actually bundle together Hulu at its discounted $1.99 a month price with Disney Plus at an equally ridiculously low rate, coming together at a rate of under $5 a month for both.
Slashing its prices by 75% last year, Hulu thus far has only introduced its great value deal on its Hulu With-Ads plan (usually costing $7.99 a month). While it would be interesting to see it reduce a Black Friday Hulu deal on its other plans, it makes sense the platform would continue to reduce its most affordable rate come next year.
One of the few opportunities to save on a Hulu plans and prices, read on for our predictions on what to expect from 2023's best streaming deals come Black Friday, as well as what we've seen in the past.
