HBO is $4.99/month at Hulu (limited time offer)

Hulu is offering the HBO add-on for only $4.99/month (+ 1-week free trial).

When you sign-up, that discounted price is locked in for 6 months. You don't need to subscribe to Hulu TV. It works on the normal Hulu plans.

You can sign-up by going to your Account page and clicking on Your Subscription > Add-Ons > Manage.

According to Cord Cutters News, the offer is valid until July 30th.

That's a good deal. Just in time for the next season of Westworld.

good price BUT will be presented in 2.0 stereo. FYI HULU playback is never in 5.1.

Doesn't hulu also max out at 720p resolution, too? Or have they upgraded their resolution?

I think you can use your Hulu credentials to log in via HBO Now. Which has full 1080p/5.1 support.

I think HBO is available with Direct TV Now for 5 bucks. Hulu is just for a limited time only.

Hulu varies, but it's usually 1080p and is up to 4K on a few things though. https://www.hulu.com/press/4k-ultra-...aming-on-hulu/

I just signed up for this deal today. I had HBO via my cable company, but I'm saving over $10 by switching to Hulu HBO.

^ Excellent! I'll give it a try. It's worth it for $4.99.

Signed up for it yesterday and it's good so far. One has to keep an eye on what is and isn't in 5.1. Some of the material there may only be in HD and have a 2.0 soundtrack if it doesn't indicate 5.1. There's enough programming there to get me my money's worth until the trial expires in 6 months.

Yeah a bunch of streaming threads with nonsense one line posts were made by “Mariana” who now appears to be deleted and gone.
