If you’re looking for another way to get your fix of Showtime without having to rely on a cable connection, Hulu will soon have you covered.
Hulu is now entering into a partnership with the cable network to make it available to their customers via a bundle that combines its subscription service and an online membership to Showtime.
The membership allows subscribers to get the opportunity to watch new shows from the channel soon after their broadcast as well as past series, movies, sports events and documentaries.
The package would cost $17 per month.
In addition, Hulu will offer potential subscribers a free trial membership that lasts 30 days.
Matthew C. Blank, CEO and chairman of Showtime Networks, said of the deal: “We’re excited to be the first premium service available to Hulu’s growing subscriber base and look forward to offering their customers our award-winning original programming, films and documentaries across almost every device.”
The combined service cost for the package is slightly less than it would be if one were to get the two services separately.
