Sprint throws in a Hulu subscription with its Unlimited Freedom plan

Sprint Says Hello to Hulu- Sprint Unlimited Freedom will now include Hulu

These partnerships involving unlimited-data plans appear to be less controversial to somewhat similar sponsored-data arrangements whereby wireless customers on metered-data plans can have a "zero rating" for certain video content -meaning the data used from qualifying apps or services don't count against the subscriber's data limit.

No catches, no strings attached, no hidden surcharges and no special requirements. The Netflix offer includes TV shows, movies and original series, like "Stranger Things", "The Crown" and "Ozark".

Unlimited Freedom customers will have free access to Hulu's Limited Commercials plan. But hey, beggars can't be choosers, and alongside unlimited data, talk, text and Hulu streaming at HD quality, Sprint subscribers also get a 10GB monthly mobile hotspot allowance for their 60 bucks.

The two companies will also offer Sprint Unlimited customers an upgrade option for Hulu's sports and news-centric live TV plan in the future.

Essential offers up an Android Oreo beta for the Essential Phone
The chart for the month of November, published earlier today, paints a not so encouraging picture for Android. To be precise, the stats are based on active devices interacting with Google Play over the period of a week.

The promotion will apply to any current or new customers that are on the Sprint Unlimited Freedom plan.

A Sprint spokesperson did not immediately respond to an inquiry about whether the company would obtain a discount on the Hulu service.

Each line on a Sprint family plan would be eligible to get their own Hulu account, so a family of five could each create their own separate accounts. Users could then watch the streaming service on any device that has a Hulu app, including phones, tablets, video game systems and smart TVs. Sprint is the fourth of the four major wireless carriers to make moves on the video front as video represents an ever-increasing share of wireless network traffic.

AT&T Inc, which is in the process of buying Time Warner Inc for $85.4 billion, has already started bundling the premium channel HBO with wireless service.
