Sprint throws in a Hulu subscription with its Unlimited Freedom plan

Sprint throws in a Hulu subscription with its Unlimited Freedom plan

The move follows earlier offerings from wireless rivals: AT&T (T +0.2%) bundling its service with add-in HBO, from its hopeful acquisition Time Warner (TWX -0.6%), and T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS) offering up free Netflix. Consumers are using their mobile phones to stream more video, and offering Hulu helps Sprint differentiate its service, Samson said.

Unlimited Freedom customers will have free access to Hulu's Limited Commercials plan.

Sprint's current unlimited plan, dubbed "Unlimited Freedom", costs $60 per month for one line or $100 per month for up to five lines for new subscribers until January 31, 2019.

The promotion will apply to any current or new customers that are on the Sprint Unlimited Freedom plan. 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. Those streaming to a TV or gaming systems can stream it up to 4K quality, assuming the content you are watching is available at that resolution and that you have 4K-capable device. If interested, you can always head to the Sprint website for more details.

The "Atmospheric River" that's barreling toward Northern California will bring heavy snow to the Sierra Nevada. Valley locations will start as rain with higher elevations beginning to see accumulating snow.

The agreement with Hulu gives Sprint an additional perk to offer subscribers as it plots a future as a standalone company.

The partnership is not the first bundle for either company as both attempt to attract users in their respective, competitive markets. "We're excited to provide Sprint customers the best in entertainment through our unique partnership with Hulu".

Samson did not disclose terms of the Hulu deal, but did say the partnership would run for "multiple years". The carrier said earlier this month that it ended merger talks with T-Mobile because Sprint Chairman Masayoshi Son was not prepared to relinquish control of the company.
