Hulu sells discounted HBO ahead of Westworld return

Hulu is giving subscribers a discount on HBO, ahead of the return of Westworld for its second season on the platform.

Subscribers of the streaming platform who don’t have HBO on the platform can now gain a discount for six months, priced at $4.99 (£3.49) per month. After the period, the price will go back up at $14.99 again.

The company began making the limited offer on its website, but never officially announced the move.

Hulu began offering HBO as an add-on to its service last July, which joins further channels such as Showtime and Cinemax.

This week, Hulu also began offering a premium bundle, which sees it offer a subscription for music streamer Spotify and Hulu for $12.99 a month.
