Hulu is a world-renowned streaming app that has thousands of hours of content available to be accessed by the users. Hulu is in straight competition with Netflix and HBO, so users can have all three apps in their streaming devices in order to have a gamut of entertainment.
Hulu has taken a step recently that has surprised many of its users. Hulu has provided its subscribers with a great option to subscribe to HBO via Hulu account, or link their HBO subscription to Hulu account. There are many ways of making binge-watching a lot more convenient, but many users deemed those two ways more convenient than other ways.
Now, it may interest you to know that how Hulu accomplished this feat, then in order to know it, you will have to keep reading the post.
Method 1: For new HBO subscribers
If you haven’t had a chance to subscribe to HBO until now, then you can do so right now, but you will have to make use of your Hulu account in order to subscribe to HBO. You must be thinking that this process is going to be a bit complicated but in reality, it is not. Moreover, you will get one month free with such a subscription along with a number of other features.
Here is what you are going to do in order to get HBO on Hulu:
- Log into your Hulu account. Enter your username and password correctly.
- You will see an option named ‘your subscriptions’ below which there is an option named ‘Manage’ that you need to tap. Now, you will see an option named ‘add-ons’.
- Now, tap the option named ‘manage add-ons’ or scroll down to the option named ‘Premium add-ons’.
- Find ‘HBO’ option and then, tap ‘add this’.
Now, it’s time to confirm the payment method, and after that, HBO will pair up with your Hulu account. You can now watch anything from your Hulu app as well as HBO Now app at once.
Register your Hulu account with HBO now if you are looking to watch your favorite content on HBO Now app. Here is what you will have to do in order to register the account:
- Go to ‘HBO registration page’.
- Choose ‘Hulu’ as your provider and then, enter the username and password for your Hulu account. Only do this if prompted.
- Finish off the registration process and after that, you can use the same credentials to get into your HBO Now app as that of Hulu.
Method 2: Current HBO Now Subscribers
If you are already using HBO Now service, then you need to follow a different process, which is discussed as below.
You are going to find out that both HBO and Hulu are not confirming the permissions to link an existing HBO Now subscriptions to Hulu account at the time when it is paired with another provider. It has been made clear by both, Hulu as well as HBO that both the services will only be available when users will cancel the subscription of their already running HBO Now account and then, subscribing it again via Hulu.
Users can easily find cancellation instructions provided by another provider on the web and then, following those, they can terminate the ongoing subscription. After terminating the subscription, they will have to wait until the completion of billing cycle because only then, it makes sense to subscribe to HBO Now using Hulu as the provider.
