Sprint is including free Hulu with its unlimited plan starting November 17th

Sprint, Altice USA Set Wireless Partnership

Yesterday, we told you that Wave7 Research had published a report, stating that Sprint would offer free Hulu to its unlimited customers.

Sprint's Unlimited plans normally cost $60 monthly for one line, an additional $40 for line 2, and an additional $30 per month for lines 3-5. Sprint's deal with Hulu means customers can save $7.99 a month, the usual price of the streaming plan. Now, it looks like Sprint is taking a page from team Magenta's book because it will start offering free Hulu for its customers starting on November 17. Users will be able to stream games from the NFL, NCAA football, MLB, NBA, European Premier League soccer and more with the upgrade.

"We know people love watching TV on their mobile devices, so we're making it easier than ever for Sprint customers to enjoy their favorite shows and movies on Hulu", said Tim Connolly, SVP and head of distribution and partnerships at Hulu. Getting in a dig at T-Mobile and its partnership with Netflix, Sprint says, "Other wireless carriers might say they have entertainment covered". If an eligible Sprint customer has an existing Hulu with limited commercials SVOD plan they can merge it with their Sprint account and then all billing will go through Sprint. A new partnership between Sprint and Hulu capitalizes on this new TV foodscape through a sweet and salty spread of TV-inspired popcorn flavors. Hulu's benefits are more financial, since the service, according to TechCrunch, gets a piece of the revenue that Sprint gets from subscribers each month.

Sprint now offers four lines of Unlimited Freedom at $25/line, with a 5th line free, bringing its five-line total to $100/month. Sprint Unlimited plans also include a mobile hotspot with up to 10 gigabytes per month of data usage.

Sprint and Hulu's deal comes after T-Mobile and Netflix announced a similar bundle in September, titled "Netflix On Us". However, you do get full access to Hulu's expansive streaming library, including Hulu Originals like The Handmaid's Tale.
