Thanksgiving: a time for family, food and laying on the couch in a food coma for hours after dinner watching TV. This year, ahead of the holiday season, you can get an early Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal on Hulu, our favorite streaming service for the general TV lover. From now until next Tuesday, new and eligible subscribers (those who have an email that hasn’t been used for a Hulu account in at least a month) can get an ad-supported Hulu subscription for just $0.99 per month for 12 months. That’s $12 for the whole year to stream shows like The Golden Bachelor and The Bear — AKA two of the shows you should definitely show your grandma this Thanksgiving!
Plus, the platform is also offering a huge discount on its Starz on Hulu add-on. For your first six months, you can get Starz on Hulu — typically an $18 per month duo— for just an extra $0.99 per month. That means for just $2, you’ll get tons of movies you can only stream on Starz right now, and access to almost every great Thanksgiving TV episode, right on time for that post-turkey crash.
Why is this a good Black Friday deal?
Anyone who streams anything these days knows that streaming platforms rarely (if ever, *cough* Netflix *cough*) have sales. But not only is the Hulu Cyber Week sale a literal once in a year event, it also offers you savings of up to $84 for a whole year (or $7 monthly) which feels especially significant in this day and age of streaming costs.
And if you want to add more movies (and even a few shows) into the mix, you can also add six months of Hulu’s Starz add-on for an extra $0.99 per month. Starz will get you classic Christmas movies like Home Alone and Home Alone 2, plus new shows like Party Down and Shining Vale. Starz on Hulu typically costs $17.98 per month, but for six months you can score both Hulu and Starz for just $2.

Why do I need Hulu?
You’ll definitely want Hulu if you’re interested in keeping up with new and trendy shows (and The Kardashians!). Not only do you get access to Hulu Originals like Black Cake, Quiz Lady and Faraway Downs, you also get FX shows including The Bear (a perfect Thanksgiving show), What We Do in the Shadows and A Murder at the End of the World. And if you add Starz into the mix, you’ll get even more shows like Minx, Gaslit, P-Valley and Outlander.
Hulu was also our top streaming pick for TV junkies in our 2023 ranking of the best streaming services for TV, movies, sports and more.
