    Let's be honest, no one has ever enjoyed sitting through those immensely boring thirty second advertisements, whether that be on YouTube, Twitch or any other major streaming platform. Earlier this year, Google announced their plans for users to pay an optional monthly fee for an ad-free YouTube, and it appears that Hulu, the online streaming service that offers a wide selection of TV shows, clips and movies, is following closely in Google's footsteps.

    According to an article from The Wall Street Journal, Hulu is planning on launching their ad-free service as early as this Fall. Thousands of people have complained throughout the last few years regarding the annoying ads that appear while they're watching content via Hulu, so this seems like a reasonable idea, right? Well, there is of course a slight catch. This upcoming service will cost anywhere between $12-$14 per month. That's quite expensive considering other services, such as Netflix, only charge $7.99 per month for the exact same benefits.

    Would the extra few dollars honestly be worth it? Leave your opinions in the comments below.

    The price is very steep considering I can watch anything I want for free if I look hard enough. Thanks, but no thanks Hulu.

    I wonder if the price will automatically raise, or if we will have to upgrade.

      I think we will have the option. Just like how Netflix offers the streaming only or streaming and dvds to the house.

      I'd rather just have the price update. But oh well.

      You can watch the same thing that they stream for free. Same here why pay 7 bucks or whatever for free stuff.

    I used Hulu before and I never really liked it but this would probably make it a bit better.

    It might be worth it considering Hulu, has much better TV Shows apposed to Netflix(In my opinion).

    LOL, No way I'm going to pay more for ad-free. There is some annoyance but not that bad. I'll stick with the $7.99/month
