HULU plans to start charging to watch
The popular site Hulu has become a staple in homes because of it’s free accessibility to watch all the TV shows that you may have missed over the years. Now Hulu is jumping on the pay-for-content bandwagon and is going to start charging for their content. The new plan is to charge users to watch episodes of “30 Rock,” “Modern Family,” and “House.”
LATimes.com reports that the company is currently going over several plans to put into action. One option is to allow users to watch the latest 5 episodes of a TV show for free, but then charge a $4.99 fee a month to watch the older ones. In order to get people to shell out a fee as small as $4.99, they believe they need to have a catalog of at least 20 shows in order to make it appealing. They company believes they will have a price model to follow in less than six months.
Many companies are turning to the pay-for-content deal rather than looking for advertisers that are quickly disappearing and Hulu is the latest company to follow in those steps.
