“The Handmaid’s Tale” season four.

  • The Handmaid’s Tale” is a TV adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s classic novel.
  • The fourth season premiered on April 28 exclusively through Hulu.
  • A Hulu subscription costs $6 a month with ads, or $12 a month for ad-free streaming.

Streaming Service (small)Bundle Monthly Subscription (small)

The critically acclaimed Hulu original series, “The Handmaid’s Tale,” has returned with an all-new season.

Based on Margaret Atwood’s classic book, the show has been a hit on the streaming service through the first three seasons. “The Handmaid’s Tale” is set in a dystopian alternate reality where women are subjugated under a totalitarian government. The new season features June (Elisabeth Moss) taking on the role of a “fierce rebel leader” against the Republic of Gilead, according to Hulu’s synopsis.

“The Handmaid’s Tale” has received numerous awards, including an Emmy for outstanding drama series in 2017, and a Golden Globe for best drama series in 2018. The show holds an “88% Fresh” rating on review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes.

How to watch ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ on Hulu

The fourth season of “The Handmaid’s Tale” premiered on Hulu with three new episodes on April 28. Hulu will then release one new episode every Wednesday between May 5 and June 16.

If you want to catch up on past seasons before the premiere, you can stream all 36 episodes from the first, second, and third seasons of “The Handmaid’s Tale” right now on Hulu.

Hulu’s basic, ad-supported plan costs $6 a month or $60 a year. We recommend you get the annual version for the most savings, as it comes out to $12 less per year. For ad-free streaming, you can opt for Hulu’s premium plan at $12 a month. No matter what on-demand plan you choose, new members get a free 30-day trial.

Streaming Service (small)

You can also package Hulu Basic with Disney Plus and ESPN+ for $14 a month. The bundle will supplement Hulu’s library with live sports from ESPN+ and tons of hit movies and shows from Disney Plus. Other versions of Hulu are also available with the bundle for an extra fee. You can find a detailed breakdown of Hulu bundle options here.

Bundle Monthly Subscription (small)

“The Handmaid’s Tale” is available to watch on Hulu through a range of streaming devices including Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, and most smart TVs. You can also access Hulu through a web browser.

How to watch ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ without Hulu

If you don’t want to pay a monthly fee, you can buy individual episodes or full seasons of “The Handmaid’s Tale” from digital retailers like Amazon, iTunes, and Vudu. Episodes are priced at $3 each in HD video quality.

That said, only the first three seasons are available to buy from other platforms. As such, we recommend Hulu as a better option since Hulu will grant you access to the fourth season as soon as it premieres.

It’s not clear when other platforms will add season four, but it usually takes several months for new seasons to receive a home video release after they air on Hulu.

Hulu Basic is one of the most affordable streaming services on the market – here’s what you get for $6 a month

Hulu Basic vs Hulu Premium 4x3

Streaming Service (small)

As streaming services surge in interest following a year spent mostly indoors, cable subscriptions and cinema outings are fading away in favor of at-home binge-watching sessions and indoor movie nights. In fact, a survey of American households suggests the average home now has four streaming subscriptions.

Many people are looking for the best value to help build their repertoire of digital platforms. Hulu Basic is one of the cheapest options at just $6 a month ($60 a year). The plan gets you access to an extensive library of shows, movies, and Hulu Originals.

What is Hulu Basic?

Hulu Basic is the company’s simplest and most affordable streaming option. For $6 a month you get access to Hulu’s entire catalog, but you will have to watch some ads as you stream. New subscribers can receive a free 30-day trial when they sign up.

Hulu plays host to a wide variety of content, including comedies like “Letterkenny,” cartoons like “Animaniacs,” dramas like “Fargo,” gems from the ’90s like “Seinfeld,” Hulu originals like “The Handmaid’s Tale,” and even Oscar-winning films like “Nomadland.”

You can also use Hulu to keep up with select network shows as they air – or the day after they air – like “Saturday Night Live,” “The Bachelor,” and many more. This is a huge advantage over Netflix where you have to wait up to a year or more for an entire season to show up.

What’s the difference between Hulu Basic and Hulu Premium?

Hulu Basic costs just $6 a month, while Hulu premium is $12 a month. Both offer access to Hulu’s entire on-demand catalog, but Basic has ads while Premium is ad-free.

Students can get Hulu Basic for $2 a month with a verified college enrollment – a savings of $48 a year compared to the regular price.

In exchange for a cheaper monthly rate, Hulu Basic serves you unskippable ads before and during your stream. Hulu will typically air five minutes of ads for 30-minute programs and 10 minutes of ads for hour-long programs. It’s a small price to pay for halving the cost of your subscription, and it’s still less overall ad time than you’d find on cable.

You can also sign up for Hulu Basic as part of a bundle with Disney Plus and ESPN+. This bundle costs $14 a month, which is about $6 cheaper than the price of paying for all three services separately. The plan is $20 a month for Disney Plus, ESPN+, and Hulu Premium.

How can I stream Hulu?

Most smart TVs have Hulu already built in, so all you’ll have to do is launch the app and sign in to start watching. You can explore our guide for the best affordable smart TVs if you want a new display on a budget.

Aside from streaming on your laptop or phone, you can also use a streaming stick or box. These devices connect to your TV, offering access to apps like Hulu. We recommend the Roku Ultra as our top streaming option, but there are tons of other devices across price ranges.

One of the top winners at the 2021 Academy Awards was “Nomadland.” If you haven’t seen the film yet, Hulu is here to help. “Nomadland” premiered in theaters and on Hulu simultaneously on February 19. The movie is also available to buy through video-on-demand services like Prime Video.

The film is based on the book “Nomadland: Surviving America in the Twenty-First Century.” The story centers on a woman, Fern (Frances McDormand), who loses her job due to the recession. As she searches for work on the road in her van, Fern hears stories from other nomads in the American West. The film features supporting actors who are nomads in real life, including Bob Wells, known for his YouTube channel CheapRVliving.

“Nomadland” is directed by Chloé Zhao, who won best director at the 2021 Academy Awards. Zhao’s win made her the first woman of color and second woman ever to win the Oscar for best directing. Her next film will be Marvel’s superhero movie “Eternals” starring Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, and Kumail Nanjiani.

Aside from Zhao’s win, the film also took home the 2021 Oscar for best picture, and McDormand won best actress for her role as Fern. “Nomadland” has a “94% Certified Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and Insider critic Jacob Sarkisian gave the movie an “A-” grade in his full review.
