It's official! Sprint Unlimited subscribers get unlimited Hulu
Yesterday, we told you that Wave7 Research had published a report, stating that Sprint would offer free Hulu to its unlimited customers. Whether the report forced Sprint to show its hand early, or the carrier had always planned on introducing this new feature today isn't known, and it really doesn't matter. Starting on November 17th, Sprint Unlimited subscribers get to enjoy as much Hulu as they care to view.

For those unaware, Hulu is a streaming video provider with a library of movies, original and hit television shows that you can watch over your mobile device. According to the carrier, 80% of smartphone owners stream video on their handset.

Sprint is marking this occasion by creating eight new types of popcorn named after shows that can be streamed on Hulu. For example, the "This is Us" flavored popcorn tastes like salty tears, the "Seinfeld" tastes like nothing, and the "Cheers" popcorn has a taste of beer and pretzels. Customers can win the limited edition popcorn by using the hashtag #HungryforHulu on Twitter.

Those switching now to Sprint can score unlimited talk, text and data for $25 a month per line. The fifth line is free. That is five lines of unlimited data plus Hulu for $100 a month. Getting in a dig at T-Mobile and its partnership with Netflix, Sprint says, "Other wireless carriers might say they have entertainment covered. But are they doing it at the best price?" With Sprint Unlimited, video streams at 1080p, streaming music up to 1.5Mbps and gaming up to 8Mbps. During periods of traffic congestion, these speeds could be throttled.

That’s cool but I looked up Verizon and I see that they were supposed to get a streaming service as well. Since I have Verizon I was wondering if they are going to compete with this somehow because this is great. Free stuff is awesome and free streaming service is really great matchup with a phone service.

I have Verizon an old beyond unlimited plan I watch Hulu and Netflix everyday and never had a problem with data since it's unlimited . Not once have they slowed my 4G LTE data speed.

Not so sure this is a good partnership, both Sprint and Hulu are struggling to stay relevant.

I like Hulu but the new layout is such a pain to use that I end up using Netflix

I don't use Hulu, but my wife says the same thing.

Just like T-Mobile offering free Netflix, you will give up great network coverage, the ability to make and receive phone calls, just to get a free service that cost $10 a month. How will you watch it with that s**tty coverage?

There are areas where T-Mobile coverage is as good as or better than Verizon or AT&T. Their speed is better than both in most areas. In my area, my son was on T-Mobile, and his speed killed my Verizon phone. He had a couple of small dead spots, but Verizon has a couple of areas where I drop to 3G, and at Verizon 3G speed, I might as well have been in a dead zone. I seriously considering moving the family to T-Mobile. If I have one more problem with Verizon and their locked down devices, I'm gone.

Don't waste your time, Ted. His old notions of what T-Mobile used to be are all he has to cling to now.

If T-Mobile actually had good service, they wouldnt be out there giving away so much crap. So please shut the f**k up.

Like AT&T gives away HBO? Like Verizon is rumored to be getting ready to do, or with their Up Rewards. They're right, you don't know what you're taking about.

Its not just for new customers if you ask for it in online chat they will add it to your account free. Hulu is becoming better and were getting tired of the garbage on Netflix. Netflix has been adding foreign shows with subtitles even cartoons. They are also losing Disney and no replacement as yet has appeared. Hulus a nice replacement especially when its free it has older shows we like to watch like Big valley, alias smith and jones, Ironside.
