'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.


It's the last day to get Hulu's Black Friday deal: Get 1 year of Hulu for $1 a month

Get a Hulu (with ads) subscription for just $1 a month for the first year with this Black Friday deal.


Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy aren't the only places still offering Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales: Streaming service Hulu has a truly great deal on a subscription. If you sign up for Hulu (with ads) right now, you'll pay only $0.99 a month for the first year -- a major price drop from the usual price of $7.99 a month. This deal ends midnight tonight. 

This is the biggest Black Friday deal Hulu has run so far. New customers and past customers who cancelled their account more than one month ago are eligible to sign up with the deal. You can also add on Starz an additional $0.99 a month for the first six months, down from $9.99 a month.

The deal is open to existing standalone Disney+ and ESPN+ subscribers, too. After the first year, the regular price of $7.99 a month will kick in, unless you cancel your subscription. (The same goes for the Starz add-on after the first six months.) If you've been considering a subscription, now is the time to buy -- we don't expect to see a lower price at any other time in the near future.
