It's not clear how long Hulu will offer the promotion. Hulu said only that it's a "limited-time offer."
Hulu is one of many streaming video services eager to step in as a replacement for traditional monthly cable TV subscription fees, and HBO is fueling the shift with its $15-a-month HBO Now program. Several services besides Hulu offer HBO Now, including Amazon Prime, Roku, Verizon and Google Fiber.
Another major cable TV powerhouse, Disney's ESPN, arrived on streaming video services on Thursday. The ESPN+ service, though, doesn't offer the live games you expect on the cable TV version of ESPN.
