Hulu Offers Subscription Service With Huluplus
space
Merkader   |  

We have known that popular internet television site Hulu was going to a subscription model for a while now. What we didn’t know is how paid Hulu would be different from free Hulu. Well, the curtain has just been lifted with Huluplus. You can check out the site to see the list of much of the content that is being offered, and it’s quite extensive.

The big thing for me is that having the subscription will open up Hulu to new devises, like, the PS3 come this July and the Xbox 360 in early 2011. That’s right Hulu, with more content, right into your living room through your gaming console.

We were teased that Hulu’s subscription service was coming to one of these devices, but I never thought it would come to both! Very impressive, I do not think cable companies will like this one bit, and soon enough I may be canceling my cable all together. What about you? Interested in giving Hulu ten bucks a month instead of paying a cable provider? Watch the video below and see if Huluplus is for you.

  1. My reponse is this….

    Unlimited Netflix downloads through my Nintendo Wii for $9 a month.

  2. Hey Jim…same thing with the PS3 and Xbox. Soooo, how about Huluplus and Netflix on my PS3? Oh…and I can play my Blu-ray movies and DVDs. Oh…I can do the same motion control as your Wii later this year. Next…

  3. No sure I want to pay for yet another service. This looks like it’s TV only right now. Maybe if it’s movies too. Not sure but won’t be getting it now.

  4. Well, that looks disappointing. Shows from the past year can be watched/downloaded from a gazillion different sites. With two exceptions (the 2009 “Cupid” remake and “Sons of Tucson”), I didn’t see any shows in that clip that aren’t available on DVD (actually, a few haven’t hit disc yet, but they should in the next couple months).

    What I like about Hulu is they’ve got a lot of offbeat, short-lived shows you can’t see ANYWHERE else (My Mother the Car, Nanny and the Professor, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventures: The Animated Series, The Munsters Today, etc.). Once it was announced that Disney was on board with Hulu, I’d hoped that some of their weird and wonderful Touchstone Television shows would wind up on the site (“Herman’s Head,” “Nurses,” “Teen Angel,” “You Wish,” “Life’s Work,” etc.) but no such luck (and the few Touchstone shows that they have made available like “Rodney” and “Less Than Perfect” only include the first seasons). I thought perhaps when Hulu went paid, they’d trudge up more of that kind of stuff, but judging from that promo, it’s not gonna happen.

  5. I like where they are going with this but I think $10 a month is more than most people are willing to pay for this. I can already stream Hulu content to my PS3 and adding a pretty UI doesn’t make it worth $10 to me. For $10 I would rather just use Netflix and have the ability to rent Blu-rays in addition to streaming instantly.
