Hulu Plus Drops Price To $7.99/Month

After kicking around in invite-only mode since the summer at the price of $9.99/month, Hulu’s premium service Hulu Plus went live for all interested parties today — and at two dollars per month less.

The new $7.99/month price puts Hulu Plus more in line with Netflix’s pricing. The big difference still remains that, in spite of paying a premium for the larger content selection, Hulu Plus subscribers still have to watch commercials at regular intervals, while Netflix has said they have no intention of adding ads to their streaming content.

So does the lower price tag make Hulu Plus more attractive to you? Or is it still too much to pay for the service?
