To help on this front, Sprint has announced a new partnership with Hulu that will benefit users of its Unlimited Freedom wireless plans.

Under the agreement, Sprint's unlimited plan, priced at $60 a month for a single line, will cover Hulu's $7.99 a month basic subscription.

These days, streaming services and mobile service providers go together like peanut butter and jelly: AT&T, for example, allows you to get free HBO with its Unlimited Plus plan, while T-Mobile now gives you free Netflix.

Verizon, the largest carrier in the USA, does not include any premium paid-content offerings with its service, though it does have its own go90 video service.

New US standard redefines high blood pressure
The changes were announced at the American Heart Association's 2017 Scientific Sessions conference in Anaheim, California. The definition of high blood pressure is now being defined as readings of 130/80 instead of 140/90.

A Sprint spokesperson did not immediately respond to an inquiry about whether the company would obtain a discount on the Hulu service. As for Sprint's Unlimited Freedom plan, it's listed at $25/month for the first four lines, with a fifth line being free.

Sprint's Unlimited Freedom plan is priced at $60 per month for one line, or you can get up to five lines for $100 per month through January 31, 2019.

Sprint says it and Hulu "soon plan to offer Sprint Unlimited customers an upgrade option for Hulu's sports and news-centric live TV plan". Users could then watch the streaming service on any device that has a Hulu app, including phones, tablets, video game systems and smart TVs. Starting on November 17th, Sprint Unlimited subscribers get to enjoy as much Hulu as they care to view. "What we have to do is have great partnerships where we can strategically put it inside our bundle". The limited commercials plan offers access to Hulu's entire library of TV series and movies, including The Good Doctor, This is Us, The Mindy Project and originals like The Handmaid's Tale.

The bigger drawback, of course, is that "limited commercials" isn't the same thing as "no commercials".
