If you were crushed when Hulu discontinued its free streaming service, I’ve got good news for you.

For a limited time only, Groupon is offering a free 45-day subscription to Hulu. You read that right — you’ll pay zero dollars.

How to Get Hulu for Free

This Groupon exclusive lets you “buy” a 45-day trial subscription to Hulu’s limited commercials plan (which normally costs $7.99 a month) for the low, low cost of nothing. You’ll get unlimited access to Hulu’s streaming service, which includes a full catalog of top shows both new and old, popular movies and original series.

This deal is only good for new customers, and you must provide a valid credit card number to claim it. Once the 45-day trial period expires, your plan will automatically renew and your card will be charged $7.99 a month going forward, but you always have the option to cancel before then and incur no charge.

I don’t know about you, but I could watch a ridiculous amount of New Girl, Parks and Rec and Scream Queens in 45 days. (Here’s what else is coming to Hulu in October.)

Groupon doesn’t mention exactly when this deal expires, but since it’s a limited-time offer, we suggest heading over there before it’s too late.

And if you love it enough to keep on watching even after your free trial ends, use this trick to keep streaming Hulu for free.
