Hulu Plus Subscription Price Might Be Slashed in Half

While Netflix has largely overwhelmed the subscription streaming market, CEO Reed Hastings even refers to the company now as “a streaming company that also offers DVD-by-mail,” Hulu still vies to regain their spot as the premier entertainment streaming source on the web. The launch of Hulu Plus several months ago was met with a mixed critical reception, with some critics lauding the company for charging $9.99 without removing the advertising.

Recent reports suggest that Hulu could be slicing their streaming service price by up to 50%, down to $4.95 rather than nearly $10. Netflix is also expected to launch a streaming-only pricing plan for $7.99 in the near future. Is there room for two horses in this one horse town?
