All the Hulu Add-ons You Can Buy to Upgrade Your Account





Hulu has made its mark in the streaming industry by providing users with features that allow them to stream their way, including a personalized watchlist with recommendations, customizable viewing options, on-demand licensed content, and original content as well. The streaming service also includes ‘add-ons’ that create new ways to stream and additional content and features.

Here are all of the add-ons available to you with your Hulu subscription that you can purchase for an additional monthly fee.

Premium add-ons

Hulu subscribers are able to access content specifically from premium networks by purchasing Premium Add-ons. You can purchase as many of these as you want to optimize your streaming.

  • Showtime-$10.99/mo.
  • HBO Max- $14.99/mo.
  • CineMax- $9.99/mo.
  • STARZ- $8.99/mo.

Entertainment add-ons

Through Hulu’s Entertainment Add-on you can stay current with programs from the following channels: American Heroes Channel, CNBC World, Cooking Channel, Destination America, Discovery Family, Discovery Life, DIY, FYI, Lifetime Movies, and Science. This add-on costs $7.99/mo.

Live TV add-ons

You can also use Hulu to watch live TV and stay current with things like news, sports, and more. Hulu currently has two live TV plans available. Hulu + Live TV costs $54.99/mo. while Hulu (No Ads) + Live TV costs $60.99/mo. If you have either of these plans, you also have the ability to buy the add-ons below.

  • Hulu’s Español Add-on gives you access to live TV content in Spanish. CNN en Español, Discovery en Español, Discovery Familia, ESPN Deportes, History Channel en Español, and NBC Universo are all made available through this Add-on. This add-on costs $4.99/mo. 
  • Hulu’s Unlimited Screens add-on helps to ensure that you never run into a “too many screens” message again. Without this add-on, Hulu only allows you to stream from up to 5 different devices at a time. With this add-on, you, your family, your friend, and even your friend’s family can all stream at the same time. This add-on costs $9.99/mo.
  • Hulu’s Enhanced Cloud DVR add-on gives you more account storage and the ability to fast forward through ads in your recorded programs. You’ll have 200 hours of Cloud Space and be able to save more recordings as a result. This add-on costs $9.99/mo.

Should I upgrade my Hulu?

Add-ons offer promising features and content for cord-cutters to enjoy, but are they worth it? Well, it depends. If you are the kind of person who enjoys doing all your streaming in one place then it may be worth it to invest in some more add-ons. You might also benefit from comparing the prices of add-ons versus not having add-ons. Either way, the choice is yours and Hulu makes it easy to add and remove add-ons whenever you want.

Hulu plans start at 5.99/month. Check out our full review of Hulu for more information.
