Well this is interesting. Hulu now lets you pay for service using Venmo. (Think PayPal, but what the cool kids use today.) It's only for new sign-ups at the moment, but Hulu says current customers will be able to use Venmo to pay their monthly penance in due time.
Here's the deal, via Hulu itself:
Beginning today, if you have a Venmo account, you'll be able to sign up for a new Hulu account and then pay with Venmo in just a few clicks – no need to pull out your credit card and type in your card number. Just use your mobile Web browser to sign up for Hulu and select Venmo as your payment option. From there, your Venmo balance or linked payment method will be used for your monthly recurring subscription.
For those of you who are existing Hulu subscribers, you will soon be able to switch your payment preferences to Venmo too. Keep your eyes peeled for more information in the coming months.
And that, folks, is that. More ways to pay is always a good thing.
