Up until now, there was only one way to watch Hulu: with ads. Even if you paid for their subscription service, you still had to deal with ads, your library of content was just larger. Thankfully, Hulu is now launching a commercial free subscription for $11.99 a month.

At Hulu, we pride ourselves on listening to our customers and giving them the best possible experience. Many of our customers have asked us for a commercial free option, and so today we are excited to introduce just that. Providing more choice for consumers is fundamental to the Hulu experience, in addition to an array of choices in content and devices, our customers can now choose to watch with or without commercials.

Hulu will continue to offer its commercial-based subscription plan for $7.99, or the limited content free option as well. For those with the ad-free option, it is worth mentioning that not all content with be without ads. Hulu says it is still working to obtain rights to stream commercial free from some of its programming, though you can access these episodes by watching a small commercial at the beginning and end with no interruptions in the middle.

Hulu says that any show with commericals in a ad-free subscription will be clearly marked for its subscribers. Some of the shows in this commercial-equipped list include: Scandal, Grimm, New Girl, and Once Upon a Time. What do you think of the new plan, worth paying extra for?
