Incl. access to one subscription to Hulu (Hulu’s ad-supported plan) per each eligible Sprint account (excl. other Hulu plans and add-ons) while eligible Sprint plan is active and in good standing.” – Via Sprint.com, link to the page here.

Basically, as long as you keep your account in good standing, you will keep your access to your free Hulu with Ads account.

Why Is Free Hulu With Sprint Not Working?

The most likely reason you are having trouble with your Hulu through Sprint account is that you have not paid your Sprint bill. The easiest way to prevent this issue is to turn on Autopay in your account so your bill is automatically paid on your due date every month. Make sure that you have updated your payment card as well if you have got a new card recently, as not inputting your new card information is a common cause of failed payment. All these fixes are done in the Sprint Payment Center. To access the Sprint Payment Center, follow these steps:

  1. Sign into your account
  2. On the right-hand side of the screen, you will see the “My Account” button, click on it.
  3. In the dropdown menu, select Payment Center, which should be the second from the top.
  4. In the Payment Center, you can adjust Autopay settings (left-hand side) or update your card information (right-hand side) to keep your account current and retain access to your Hulu account.
