Hulu Plus Released for iOS Devices!
Today Hulu announced its premium subscription based service for streamed television content. Customers willing to pay $9.99 monthly will gain access to the full library of current Hulu television shows plus an expanded older library of content. Subscribers will be able to gain access to full seasons of shows in 720p HD format.
In addition to watching shows on the web, iOS devices are now supported, including iPad, iPhone, and iTouch devices. Streaming will be available over Wi-Fi and 3G. Hulu had this to say during todays release;
"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 there’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 Grey’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, that’s right for you."
Currently, Hulu is accepting invitation requests for users to try the service, but a public release date has note yet been announced.
The free Hulu Plus app has shown up in the App Store today and it can also be used to request an invitation, so if your a Hulu fan, we suggest that is the best way to get your name on the list.
