Hulu is keeping the $7.99 option for "limited commercials."
"At Hulu, we pride ourselves on listening to our customers and giving them the best possible experience," Mike Hopkins, CEO of Hulu, said in a statement. "Many of our customers have asked us for a commercial free option, and so today we are excited to introduce just that. Providing more choice for consumers is fundamental to the Hulu experience, in addition to an array of choices in content and devices, our customers can now choose to watch with or without commercials."
