Looking for a new streaming service? The 30-day Hulu free trial (opens in new tab) is currently our favourite way to get a taste of what's on offer from their extensive library. And Hulu is one of our favourite streaming services (and believe us, we've tried them all!) With access to thousands of TV shows and movies, some of which are exclusive to Hulu, you can easily get a month's worth of content whilst your trial is active. Below we detail the most important information about the Hulu free trial so all you need to do is to decide whether it's worth giving it a try. 

Considering this trial period is free, we think it's definitely worth checking out. If after (or during) your 30 day trial you decide it isn't for you, it's pretty easy to cancel the trail before the service start take payment. However, with a great range of TV titles and films alongside 65 live channels, we doubt you'd be pressed to find something you can enjoy during your Hulu free trial.

Although Hulu and the Hulu free trial is only officially available to US residents, those based in the UK can use one of the best VPN services to access thousands of streaming service titles around the world no matter your location.

Unfortunately, at the time of writing Hulu is not available in the UK, so you won't find any links to try out the free trial on this page. However, if you use one of the best VPN services out there, you will be able to make the most of the streaming service, wherever you are in the world. 

What's on Hulu?

Hulu offers a range of titles and caters to a wide array of tastes. It's an extensive library packed with good quality TV shows and movies for both kids and adults alike. There's also a bunch of Hulu exclusive options available.

Right now you can watch favourites like Love Island, American Horror Story, What We Do in the Shadows, Love Victor, Catfish: the TV show, Rick and Morty and much more. There's also a wide selection of films, including brand new releases like Prey and Not Okay.

There's also a (un)healthy number of great horror films on there, and if you like docs, it's got you covered there too. Popular highlights include Dark Side of the 90's, The Orange Years: The Nickelodeon Story and The Deep End.

Does Hulu offer a 30-day free trial?

In short, yes! There are two options: sign up for the free 30-day free trial with Hulu ad-supported plan, or the Hulu no ads plan. Both options will give you full access to the huge streaming library of films and TV shows for 30 days. You can then either cancel before that trial time is over, or you'll start paying for either Hulu option. 

Is Hulu free with either an Amazon Prime or Netflix account?

Of course not! They're completely different companies, that are not linked in any way. If you get a Hulu account, that's the library of films and shows that you can access. Want Netflix or Amazon Prime? You need to go to their respective sites. 

Can you get Hulu free trial in the UK?

As of January 2022, Hulu is not available in the UK due to copyright and licensing agreements. It goes without saying that the free trial is also not available in the UK. 

However, that doesn't actually mean that you can't get Hulu out of the UK. If you get one of the best VPN services out there, you can easily access Hulu from wherever you are in the world. Magic! 

What's included in the $5.99 Hulu plan?

If you choose to keep the streaming service after your trial ends, the cheapest plan available to subscribers is the $5.99 starter plan. This includes full access to the entire Hulu catalogue with limited ads. It also allows Hulu to be streamed on up to 2 different devices.
