Sprint bundles free Hulu with its Unlimited Freedom plans

As for the details: you're getting access to Hulu's $7.99 per month basic service, which includes access to the streaming company's fairly extensive library of TV shows. Now, it looks like Sprint is taking a page from team Magenta's book because it will start offering free Hulu for its customers starting on November 17.

These partnerships involving unlimited-data plans appear to be less controversial to somewhat similar sponsored-data arrangements whereby wireless customers on metered-data plans can have a "zero rating" for certain video content -meaning the data used from qualifying apps or services don't count against the subscriber's data limit.

"We know people love watching TV on their mobile devices, so we're making it easier than ever for Sprint customers to enjoy their favorite shows and movies on Hulu", Tim Connolly, senior VP and head of distribution and partnerships at Hulu, said in a statement.

Sprint's Unlimited Freedom plan is priced at $60 per month for one line, or you can get up to five lines for $100 per month through January 31, 2019. This exciting partnership with Sprint gives TV fans nationwide a powerful, seamless entertainment experience that they can take with them, whenever and wherever they want.

The deal allows one Hulu Limited Commercials plan per eligible Sprint account. After that date, the plan charges $60 for one line, $40 for the second, and $30 each month for lines three through five.

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.

Along with unlimited talk, text, and data, Unlimited Freedom also includes 10 GB of mobile hotspot. T-Mobile will pay the cost of a standard subscription for those who already have a Netflix, meaning they'll save about $120 a year.
