Microsoft and Hulu have announced that “Hulu Plus” will be making its way to Xbox LIVE in 2011 and will be available for US Xbox LIVE Gold Members only. The new Hulu Plus subscription service will retail for $9.99 a month, and from the console will be a custom experience that leverages the Xbox LIVE community features.
About Hulu Plus, taken from the Hulu Blog:
Hulu Plus is not a replacement for Hulu.com. Hulu Plus is a new, revolutionary ad-supported subscription product that is incremental and complementary to the existing Hulu service. For almost all of the current broadcast shows on our service, Hulu Plus offers the full season. Every single episode of the current season will be available, not just a handful of trailing episodes. Now thereâ€™s never a bad time to jump in on a hot new show like Modern Family (which I recommend highly). From Family Guy to Glee, from The Office to 30 Rock, from Greyâ€™s Anatomy to Desperate Housewives, from Parks & Recreation to Parenthood, from House to Saturday Night Live, and dozens of other hits, the best time to jump in on any series is any time, and with any episode, thatâ€™s right for you.
No exact launch date has been announced for the service on Xbox LIVE, but Hulu have it listed as early 2011.
Xboxic will keep you updated on any future announcements.
