Hulu to lose free service soon

We all remember the days of mooching off our neighbor’s wifi to watch last week’s SNL because nobody can afford cable anymore. Oh, wait, that’s still a very real thing.

Not for long where Hulu’s concerned. Since Time Warner Cable bought into the streaming service, it’s slowly phasing out its free shows from the likes of NBC, ABC, Fox, etc.

“Our limited free offering simply isn’t aligned with our focus on creating the best experience possible and delivering the best content we can to Hulu subscribers,” according to senior vice president Ben Smith.

Prepare to invest in the site’s offers of either $7.99/month to watch TV with commercials, or $11.99/month without them, along with access to all its original series. Time to pick up that second job you’ve been dreading.

Either way, it’s better than cable, amiright?
