Hulu Plus makes its way to Xbox 360 consoles today

04.29.2011

If you're like me and you use your Xbox 360 as much for its film and television abilities as for its video games, then perhaps the news that Hulu Plus is finally coming to Microsoft's console will tickle you right.

According to Variety, Hulu's paid service will become available today over Xbox Live, providing yet another alternative for both gamers and non-gamers alike to enjoy streaming media goodness. The service will be available to Xbox Live members for $8 per month while current Hulu Plus subscribers need simply log in and link their accounts. As a promotional deal, the company will also open up the service to all Xbox Live members (both Gold and Silver accounts) for a week of free usage, from April 29th to May 6th.

This could mean a lot more potential business for Hulu. The company will reach 1 million paying customers by the end of 2011 - generating revenue of more than $200 million - and will now be able to tap into Microsoft's 30 million Xbox Live users, opening the door for curious subscribers as well as those simply looking for another means of streaming entertainment.

XBOX BLOWS!!!

Damn took forever for hulu to make its way on the shitty xbox platform. Ps3 has had it for forever. I hate hulu plus personally mainly because they charge you 8 bucks a month which is lamost the cost of netflix. Then they still give you ads fuck that if im paying for a service i expect to not have to sit through annoying ads

I had a lot of technical issues with Hulu on the Playstation. Lots of lag and freezing. The Netflix app could stream HD cleanly all day long, though. I ultimately decided to can it because of that. AND you still have to watch commercials even though you're paying a monthly fee for the service. That's crap.

this is a great move from them as a company.
i myself view my movies the old fashion way, i either buy them or use the old download view and throw away method :P

this is mainly because there are no services like this in my country, so, we have to make do with what we have :D
