The competition between two major streaming services is heating up.

According to Hulu’s website, for a limited time, subscribers can sign up for the entry-level plan for $5.99 a month for the first year. That’s down from $7.99 a month. The commercial-free plan remains priced at $11.99 a month.

Three weeks ahead of the season 2 premiere of “Stranger Things,” Netflix announced it was raising its standard subscription plan from $9.99 to $10.99. Its 4K streaming plan also increased from $11.99 to $13.99. Its entry-level service is still priced at $7.99. 

Hulu has been adding to its current services. In May, it launched a $40-a-month live TV streaming service with more than 50 channels. The service also includes DVR storage.

Representatives from Hulu didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
