Hate Hulu ads? This might help. (Tweet This)
The video streaming company said Wednesday it has launched an ad-free option for users for $11.99 a month, $4 more than Hulu Plus.
"Many of our customers have asked us for a commercial free option, and so today we are excited to introduce just that," Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins said in a release.
The announcement came three days after the company and cable network Epix said they had signed a multi-year deal that would bring Epix films to Hulu from Oct. 1. The companies did not disclose terms of the deal.
These films include "Hunger Games: Catching Fire," "World War Z," and "Transformers: Age of Extinction," which had been available on rival streaming service company Netflix.
