There are some caveats to the huge savings deal, of course: After 12 months of paying just $1.99, subscriptions will bump up to $5.99 per month. The deal is also only open to new subscribers or returning users who have not subscribed to Hulu in the last 12 months.

It should also be noted that the $1.99 plan is for a standard, ad-supported subscription.

Hulu's terms and conditions read: "Offer valid for new and eligible returning subscribers (who have not been Hulu subscribers in the past 12 months) only. Not combinable with any free trial of the Hulu (ad-supported) plan or any other promotional offers or pricing (including the Disney bundle); not redeemable via gift card. Any plan switch after redemption of this offer will result in forfeiture of the discount pricing."
