Hulu’s 2020 Black Friday Deal: New and Upcoming Shows and Movies You Can Watch If You Sign Up

Hulu has a gift for you. The streamer is bringing back its Black Friday promotion for the third year in a row. If you’ve been on the fence about signing up for the service behind such Emmy-nominated shows as The Handmaid’s Tale and Little Fires Everywhere, this deal — which slashes the monthly price of Hulu’s ad-supported plan by 66% — could sway you.

Get Hulu for $1.99 a month  

In 2020, Hulu is once again offering a big discount on its cheapest streaming plan, which normally costs $5.99 per month. That gets you access to a library of thousands of on-demand titles, including originals such as High Fidelity and next-day streaming of The Bachelorette, Grey’s Anatomy, and other popular shows, as well as movies such as Run and I Am Greta.  

Beginning at midnight on Thanksgiving Day, new and eligible returning subscribers can sign up for Hulu’s ad-supported plan for just $1.99 a month. That saves you $48 over the course of the next year. The offer is good through 11:59 p.m. PT on Nov. 30 — aka Cyber Monday. Sign up at
