Hulu is becoming more affordable... so long as you're not a big fan of live TV. The service will cut the price of its basic tier from $8 to $6 per month as of February 26th for new subscribers, and with new billing cycles for existing customers after the 26th. If you're fine with on-demand video and can live with ads, it's that much more affordable to watch Handmaid's Tale or catch up on shows from TV networks. It's a not-so-subtle dig at Netflix's recent price hikes. However, subscribers to pricier tiers aren't getting this sweet deal.
