Even if you aren’t normally a Black Friday deal hunter, you’ll want to take a look at what Hulu’s offering for 2021. The 99-cents per month promotion is the same deal that Hulu offered in 2018. It represents a $72 savings off the normal price for a year of the streamer’s ad-supported plan, which typically costs $6.99 per month. In 2019 and 2020, the deal was 12 months for $2 a month. 

The Hulu Black Friday sale started at midnight on Thanksgiving Day. It goes through 11:59 p.m. PT on Cyber Monday (Nov. 29). You can sign up at

Hulu isn’t the only streaming service offering a big Black Friday discount this year. Starz is slashing the price of a six-month subscription from $43.99 to $20. You can get AMC+ for $1.99 per month for a year rather than the usual price of $8.99 per month. And discovery+ is on sale for 99 cents per month for three months, $4 off the normal price.
