Hulu subscribers can get Showtime's new service on the cheap

Hulu and Showtime together at last

Put another win in the cable-cutter's column: for the first time in its history, Hulu is teaming up with Showtime to offer a reduced-cost package similar to most cable providers.

The two internet TV streaming titans are teaming up to offer Showtime's new standalone streaming service at a discounted rate to Hulu subscribers.

Hulu announced today that it will offer Showtime's service to its user-base for $9 a month, instead of the $11 going-rate available to Apple TV, PlayStation Vue and Roku TV owners.

The best part of today's announcement? Showtime on Hulu will be streamed ad-free.

While we still don't have an exact date for Showtime's new service, TechRadar has been told it will launch before the season premieres of Masters of Sex and Ray Donovan on July 12.

Today's news follows Hulu's announcement earlier this month that it will drop the "Plus" from its premium subscription.
