Hulu can be watched on many different devices, but only if you have the right subscription plan. But how do you know which one to get? Fortunately, we’ve put together this guide on how to get Hulu for cheap so that you can watch it without spending an arm and a leg on your monthly bill. We’ll take you through the different plans, what they cost, and how to actually get them so that you can decide which one fits your needs best. Let’s get started!

Use an Antenna

You’ve probably heard of antennas, but it might be unclear exactly what they are. They’re pretty simple—antennas pick up over-the-air television signals using a special component of your TV or set-top box called an RF tuner. If you live in a place where local channels aren’t available with just an antenna, you can also buy streaming-ready devices that connect directly to your router via Wi-Fi. This option is becoming more common as manufacturers release TVs that have built-in streaming capabilities.

Share a subscription with friends and family

Streaming sites like Netflix and Hulu are a great way to watch tons of movies and TV shows, but that content is often locked behind paywalls. Even if you’re willing to pay for a subscription, many providers are only available in certain areas. The best way around these restrictions is to share a subscription with friends or family. For example, instead of paying $30 per month for cable access, get five people together and split it between all of you—$6 per person! The cost savings might not seem like much now (your monthly savings total just $36), but those few dollars here and there add up over time. Plus, splitting costs makes it easier when one provider inevitably runs out of whatever show everyone wants to watch at that time.

Try an over-the-air DVR Hulu

If you live in a household where you don’t subscribe to cable or satellite, you can still watch your favorite shows with an over-the-air (OTA) antenna. Over-the-air antennas connect easily to any TV and streamline access, particularly if there are multiple TVs in your home. You can even watch without internet access—no apps required! Over-the-air DVRs require an HDTV antenna, which costs $20-$80 on Amazon. If you have a compatible television and don’t want an OTA DVR, cable companies also provide free digital video recorders (DVRs).

Buy from third-party retailers like Walmart, Target, etc.

For those of you who don’t want to sign up with a cable provider, and can live without that all-important DVR feature, then there are plenty of other options out there. Walmart is one of them, and as we all know, Walmart is pretty much any family’s first stop when shopping online. The site has an impressive selection of movies and TV shows that you can rent or buy directly from them. This saves you the time (and money) it would take to sift through streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Instant Video. Plus, some titles are available in both DVD and digital form, so it’s just one less thing you have to keep track of during your movie night.

Ask your cable provider about deals with Hulu

Keep in mind that some cable providers advertise cheaper services but tack on hidden fees after you sign up. Often, it’s not clear what kind of programming or content is being offered until after you’ve already agreed to a contract. So, don’t choose your cable company based solely on cost. If a deal sounds too good to be true, it might be. Instead, find out what additional fees and costs are included with each package before you commit to anything. Then decide which features are most important for your needs and which packages fit within your budget and offer those features. Before signing up for any package or service though, be sure it has everything you need – like sports channels if that’s important to you!

Switch from cable to streaming entirely

As streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Hulu become more popular, and options expand to include live TV streams with options like Sling TV and DirecTV Now, the cable is looking increasingly expensive. Still, there are ways you can bring down your bill if you’re a little creative. If you’re only interested in watching broadcast television, for example, cutting out these premium streaming services won’t get you too far. Instead of paying around $20–$40 per month on cable for a bunch of channels, you don’t watch anyway (like ESPN or TBS), subscribe to an over-the-air DVR service that lets you record content from channels like ABC Family or CBS All Access without paying anything at all.
