Why is Hulu still giving me ads when I have the no ads plan?
Hulu (No Ads) + Live TV
Keep in mind that these additional on-demand shows and movies, Cloud DVR recordings, and live TV that you have access to are not included in the Hulu streaming library — because of this, there will be ads.
We offer a variety of plans to choose from, some of which are ad-supported. If you subscribe to one of our ad-supported plans, you'll see ads while streaming shows and movies in the Hulu streaming library. Subscribers with plans that include Hulu (No Ads) can watch without any interruptions.
Hulu (No Ads) plan excludes a few shows that play with ads before and after the video. Additional terms apply.
Hulu Ad Skipper is a Hulu-only ad blocker. This free browser plugin skips ads so users may stream uninterrupted. It skips advertising other blockers might miss, detecting ads then muting and fast forwarding them. It also supports skipping ads in Hulu+ Live recordings.
The easiest way to get rid of ads on Hulu is to upgrade your subscription to the ad-free tier. You can buy it individually for $12.99/month. You can also purchase it as part of the Disney Plus Bundle, which includes Disney+, Hulu (No Ads), and ESPN Plus for $19.99/month.
Unlimited Screens with Premium Add-ons
You'll only be able to stream premium content from a total of five screens — three of which can be on out-of-home mobile devices — at one time. If you exceed this limit you will run into a “too many streams” error message.
How much does Hulu cost? Hulu's cost starts at $7.99 per month or $79.99 per year (which saves users about $16) for its ad-supported plan. Hulu's no-ads plan costs $14.99 per month. Hulu also offers a student discount for $1.99 per month fo its ad-supported plan (which saves users $6 per month or $72 per year.)
You can download the Hulu app and activate your account on as many supported devices as you'd like, but only two of them can be streaming simultaneously. If you attempt to stream from an additional device, you may see an error message on that screen.
Hulu Premium is Hulu's ad-free version of its streaming service for $11.99 a month. You'll gain access to all of Hulu's original programming like "The Handmaid's Tale," as well as other current and classic shows like "Bob's Burgers," "Parks and Recreation," and "Saturday Night Live."
Hulu (No Ads): For $14.99/month, you can watch most of those same shows and movies without the ad breaks.
How many ads on Hulu per episode?
Hulu Originals have fewer ads than licensed shows, with subscribers seeing roughly seven ads per show. One-third of ads on Hulu are 15 seconds and a half are 30 seconds. The remaining ads are between 5 and 10 seconds.
Hulu Standard Plan
Hulu's $5.99 starter plan offers full, on-demand access to the entire Hulu catalogue with limited ads. Here's what else you'll get: Ability to stream on 2 devices at the same time. TV and movie classics.
