If a Hulu subscription is not enough for you, Sprint says that it will offer subscribers an upgrade to Hulu's live TV service, though the carrier gave no further details. Today, the Now Network did just that by announcing that, starting November 17, its Unlimited Freedom plan will include a free subscription to Hulu's Limited Commercials option. For a limited time, the carrier is also throwing in an extra line for free. The Netflix offer includes TV shows, movies and original series, like "Stranger Things", "The Crown" and "Ozark".

An entertainment driven team-up between online streamer Hulu and phone provider Sprint is offering some tasty rewards for TV fans. Those on the plan will be able to take advantage of Hulu's Limited Commercials plan, which offers a wide variety of television programming from the likes of Fox, ABC, CBS, and more. Similar to T-Mobile's deal with Netflix and AT&T's agreement with HBO, the company will continue paying for Hulu as long as customers keep their service with Sprint.

The partnership also enables Hulu, whose service is mainly geared toward younger audiences, to reach Sprint's broader customer base of families as well as share in subscriber revenue, the companies said. It's an opt-in situation, so if you're on the eligible plan you'll need to visit Sprint's website to activate it. Of Sprint's roughly 54 million subscribers, over 60% are on unlimited plans according to the company. "We're excited to provide Sprint customers the best in entertainment through our unique partnership with Hulu".

Sprint's unlimited plan costs $60 a month for one line and $100 for up to five lines (offer until January 31, 2018). Those switching now to Sprint can score unlimited talk, text and data for $25 a month per line. The plan costs $40 per line for a family of four.
