Reasons for canceling Hulu

There are many good reasons to cancel Hulu. Here are some of the top ones:

  1. Save money. Hulu, Netflix, and other streaming services are recurring monthly charges on people’s wallets. Added up, they cost a lot of money!
  2. Have time for other things without FOMO. Many people choose to cancel their streaming service apps because they want to spend more time outdoors, working out, or doing something creative
  3. Spend more time on your social life. One of the biggest reasons people choose to cancel streaming services is so they can spend more time with their loved ones, go out more, and do more social things.
  4. Get better sleep. It’s too easy to stay up all night binge-watching a series and suffer from low productivity the following day.

Alternatives to canceling Hulu

If you log in to Hulu, go to ‘account’ and hit ‘manage,’ you will be offered a few options on how to customize your Hulu service. You will immediately see options like ‘limited commercials,’ ‘Hulu with Live TV,’ and a combination of the two. If you have ‘no commercials’ activated, you can downgrade to ‘limited commercials to save a few bucks a month. If you have ‘no commercials’ activated on live TV, you can deactivate this too. Canceling Hulu’s cloud DVR storage or multiple screen services can save you some money too.

Do you like Hulu and have the included Cinemax, HBO, or Showtime services, but don’t use them much? Cancel these services to save some bucks.

One last option is to put your Hulu subscription on hold. It will give you the option of holding your subscription from one to twelve weeks. Once the period that you select is over, Hulu will automatically start charging you again.
