Content users pay a monthly fee but still have to view commercials. This may soon change. Hulu is trying a commercial free option for consumers penned NOAH.

Customers of the the premium tier have questioned why they have to pay extra but still sit through commercials. NOAH will be an ad-free option.

It will require a monthly service fee, like the premium. The fee will be almost double of the current price of $7.99.

This is the same price that Netflix asks for their base subscription and they offer no commercials. It's similar for music streaming platforms.
