Sprint is adding free Hulu service to its unlimited plan

Sprint, Altice USA Set Wireless Partnership

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.

Users can sign up for the deal on Friday by going to sprint.com/hulu from their Sprint phone and following the outlined steps.

Sprint customers with unlimited-data plans will soon enjoy free access to Hulu, Variety reported Wednesday. According to Allan Samson, Sprint's senior vice president of acquisition marketing, 95% of new subscribers are choosing an unlimited plan.

If a Hulu subscription is not enough for you, Sprint says that it will offer subscribers an upgrade to Hulu's live TV service, though the carrier gave no further details.

"Sprint is planning to include TV shows from Hulu with its unlimited plans", the market research firm wrote in a note so subscribers. For those keeping score, this basic Hulu plan usually costs $7.99 per month and only allows for one stream at a time.

In other streaming news, Hulu last week became the first USA streaming service to debut on the Nintendo Switch. "What we have to do is have great partnerships where we can strategically put it inside our bundle".

Samson did not disclose terms of the Hulu deal, but did say the partnership would run for "multiple years".
