One of the most popular streaming services around, Hulu,  is currently offering a huge incentive. This unbelievable deal applies to college students, and will likely garner a lot of new viewers. 

Hulu, owned by Disney, is offering college students an extremely affordable monthly rate plan. Those who qualify will be able to stream all of the site’s content for just $2 a month!

In order to be eligible, applicants must follow two basic guidelines. One, students must be over the age of 18. Two, they must be studying within the United States. Do you fit these two simple pieces of criteria? If so, you’re eligible to reap a 67% discount. 

For those unfamiliar with Hulu, here’s a little background on how expansive this offer is. 

The website works similarly to Netflix or Amazon Prime Video and features tons of content in every genre. A Hulu account gives the viewer access to thousands of highly popular on-demand programs. Similar to its competitors, the service also includes original series. Shows like “Pen15” and “Little Fires Everywhere” are reasons enough to hop on board. 

The website does utilize ads; however, these brief interruptions are a small price to pay; especially when considering this deal. These commercials aren’t any more noticeable than cable TV. 

Hulu’s generosity is sparked by a desire to build a younger customer base. By inviting younger customers in at a lower rate, the streaming site hopes to make a lasting impression and prove its worth in comparison to larger, more well-known competitors. 

Over the past few years, Hulu’s popularity has increased significantly. This promotion is geared towards college students in an effort to gain new life-long viewers. Hulu is in it for the long haul. 

Are you a college student looking to save some money while streaming? If so, head to the Hulu website.

Not a college student? You can still try Hulu free for 30 days!
