HULU With No Commercials – It’s Worth The Upgrade!

We have been on and off subscribers to HULU since it’s inception. I loved the idea of not having to stress whether I had a show DVR’d or not and that just about all of network television was available with anytime access.

When we first subscribed, we had constant problems with streaming. The connection would never stay and it was super annoying. When we cut cable in the last house, I NEEDED Mindy Project, so I decided to give HULU a-go again. The streaming issue was definitely resolved. BUT, I admit – I was totally annoyed that I was paying for a service that still had commercials. Take it – $7.99 didn’t break the bank – it was still annoying.

I was stoked to see that HULU started offering a commercial-free option a few months back. For $4 more a month, I could watch shows Netflix style with no commercials (but they are current season TV shows!) Since upgrading, this has definitely upped our HULU playtime. We have our fave shows and since we don’t have cable in our bedroom – HULU is now our go to.

Something to note about the HULU No Commercial plan. The following shows do still show commercials due to rights issues: Grey’s Anatomy, Once Upon a Time, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Scandal, Grimm, New Girl and How To Get Away With Murder.

What are you HULUing? Our current faves: Daily Show (but miss you Jon), Fresh Off the Boat, My Five Wives (because this makes me feel better about our real life crazy), FELICITY (all the YESes), Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Last Man On Earth.
