Sprint is including free Hulu with its unlimited plan starting November 17th

Sprint struck a deal with Hulu to offer subscribers with the wireless carrier's Unlimited Freedom plan access to Hulu's limited-commercials VOD package - normally $7.99 per month - for no additional cost, starting November 17.

Customer will get access to the Limited Commercials plan offered by Hulu (CMCSA +0.5%, DIS +0.5%, FOX -0.8%, FOXA -1.1%, TWX).

The deal will help Sprint try to keep pace with T-Mobile which offers Netflix as well as AT&T and their DirecTV Now option that can be bundled with their service.

Verizon, the largest carrier in the USA, does not include any premium paid-content offerings with its service, though it does have its own go90 video service. Sprint is marking this occasion by creating eight new types of popcorn named after shows that can be streamed on Hulu.

The two companies will also offer Sprint Unlimited customers an upgrade option for Hulu's sports and news-centric live TV plan in the future.

Commission raises forecasts for euro economy, is upbeat on Republic
Economic growth and job creation are robust, investment is picking up and government deficit and debt are gradually decreasing. By 2019, real GDP growth is expected to slow down to 4.1%, with private consumption remaining the main growth driver.

Sprint's unlimited plan costs $60 a month for one line and $100 for up to five lines (offer until January 31, 2018).

Sprint's Unlimited Freedom plan costs $60 a month for a single line and includes unlimited 1080p HD video streaming - although like unlimited plans on every other carrier, there is a soft cap of data you can use in a month, after which Sprint will deprioritize your data use during times of congestion. Currently, you can get unlimited everything for just $25 a line when signing up for a four line family plan.

As Sprint noted in a press release, the Hulu service includes "thousands of hit TV series and movies", along with "acclaimed" original content. "Customers overwhelmingly are saying this is a relevant factor in their decision of who they pick for their carrier as well as staying with their existing carrier".

AT&T Inc, which is in the process of buying Time Warner Inc for $85.4 billion, has already started bundling the premium channel HBO with wireless service.
