Good news, TV lovers! As promised back in January, US streaming service Hulu just dropped the price of its basic plan. Previously $7.99 per month, it's now $5.99.

That plan affords unlimited access to Hulu's library of movies and TV shows, though if you want commercial-free viewing, you'll have to add that option. As before, it raises the monthly rate to $11.99.

And speaking of raises, the Hulu plan that includes live TV just went up, to $44.99 per month from the previous $39.99.
