When you connect Hulu to your Facebook account, you can get a FREE 1-month trial of Hulu Plus (normally a 1-week FREE trial).
Here’s how it works:
- Register for Hulu Plus to get a FREE 1-week trial
- Visit the Hulu Plus Facebook page to connect your Facebook and Hulu accounts (no longer valid – deal as of 7/12/11)
- You will be sent a link via e-mail to add a FREE month
- Check your Hulu Plus account to confirm the first billing date is 5 weeks out
If you don’t want to continue your subscription after the trial, make sure you mark it on your calendar to cancel the subscription before the trial ends, or you’ll be charged for one month ($7.99).
Basically Hulu Plus offers additional features beyond the free Hulu service (such as the ability to watch shows on devices, HD programming and more). You can watch many ABC, Fox, and NBC shows using your internet connection.
We actually don’t have cable, so we get very creative with the limited TV that we do watch. We can get ESPN for FREE through AT&T Uverse, we have Netflix, and I will occasionally watch an episode I missed on Hulu. I also have a TV tuner on my computer, so I use my computer as a sort of DVR.
Don’t forget: you can also get a FREE 1-month subscription to Netflix.
