  • The Hulu Plus Live TV price is taking a big jump up very soon.
  • Starting December 18, subscribers will begin paying $64.99 a month for the internet live TV and on-demand service.
  • That’s a $10 price hike from the current $54.99 a month price.

The many Hulu Plus Live TV subscribers will soon need to pay more for the live TV service. According to Deadline, subscribers have been sent word that the Hulu Plus Live TV price is going up… way up. Beginning Friday, December 18, subscribers will begin paying $64.99 a month — a full $10 higher than the current $54.99 price level. The Hulu Plus Live TV package without ads will also go up by $10, from $60.99 a month to $70.99.

Hulu did not announce why the price is going up so much.

The service offers access to over 60 live TV channels, including local network affiliates. It offers additional channels, including pay movie channels via extra add-on packages.

The new Live TV price does not affect the subscription prices of Hulu’s on-demand service, which remain at $5.99 a month (with ads) or $11.99 a month (without ads). Hulu’s owner Disney announced last week that Hulu Plus Live TV had sign up 4.1 million subscribers as of September 30. The regular on-demand Hulu service had 32.5 million subscribers.

In late June, one of Hulu Plus Live TV’s biggest competitors, YouTube TV, announced an even bigger price increase. It went up by $15, from $49.99 to $64.99 a month.
