Sprint will start offering Hulu to its Unlimited Freedom customers

T-Mobile customers under the ONE family plan can stream Netflix for free with under the deal. Customers can manually sign-up for the offer at sprint.com/hulu from November 17 to December 8.

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

Sprint now offers four lines of Unlimited Freedom at $25/line, with a 5th line free, bringing its five-line total to $100/month. To help on this front, Sprint has announced a new partnership with Hulu that will benefit users of its Unlimited Freedom wireless plans. This package includes access to Hulu's fairly extensive streaming library of TV shows. The offer will be available to new or returning Hulu subscribers only, according to the terms and conditions page.

As for the promotion itself, keep in mind that Hulu's Limited Commercials option, as the name implies, does not completely eradicate ads from your video watching - that's a job for Hulu's $12-a-month No Commercial plan. It's an opt-in situation, so if you're on the eligible plan you'll need to visit Sprint's website to activate it.

Sprint's unlimited plan costs $60 a month for one line and $100 for up to five lines (offer until January 31, 2018). Getting in a dig at T-Mobile and its partnership with Netflix, Sprint says, "Other wireless carriers might say they have entertainment covered".

The partnership also enables Hulu, whose service is mainly geared toward younger audiences, to reach Sprint's broader customer base of families as well as share in subscriber revenue, the companies said. AT&T is offering free HBO included with its unlimited service.

Sprint has been in the middle of a turnaround plan to cut costs and shore up cash.
