    Hulu Beware of Hulu and their shady business practices! - worst streaming service ever

    Also of note, there is no reason to subscribe to, and pay for, Hulu basic when many other TV providers give you the same thing for free. Sling TV has a free subscription. https://watch.sling.com/browse/my-tv

    Hulu Beware of Hulu and their shady business practices! - worst streaming service ever

    Philo TV is offering a free month trial if you sign up through the Edge browser. It's a good deal for the price, but the ads are annoying when you watch shows on demand. You can skip the ads on DVR shows. Unfortunately, ad blockers won't get rid of them.

    Hulu Beware of Hulu and their shady business practices! - worst streaming service ever

    Hulu Beware of Hulu and their shady business practices! - worst streaming service ever

    I've had Hulu Live TV for a couple of years until I recently canceled. Despite the fact that their service is glitchy / unreliable and they bombard you with ads and fees every chance they get, they have some very shady billing practices. Back in 2020, I moved from one state to another. After...
