Hulu Plus is Real: /Month for iPhone, iPad and TV Viewing

Finally! Hulu Plus has been made official, and it looks awesome.

For $10 a month, you'll be able to stream in HD entire current seasons of shows Glee, Modern Family, The Office and 30 Rock as well as the entire back library of many other shows, such as Arrested Development, The X-Files and Heroes.

You can watch said shows in a variety of ways: on your computer, of course, but also on your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch--over Wi-Fi or 3G (!!). And your TV! Hulu Plus will be supported on the PS3 "soon" and the Xbox 360 in "early 2011." It'll also be supported by Samsung, Vizio and Sony TVs and Blu-ray players.

    With Hulu Plus are there still going to be commercials in the middle of viewing shows?

  • Sheena Medina

    Short answer is Yes. According to the AP report, “The paid section will show the same number of ads to viewers as on the free site, but it has more content available."

    Also in his blog post, Hulu CEO Jason Kilar defends the use of ad revenue on the grounds that it will help keep prices low: “Hulu Plus is a new, revolutionary ad-supported subscription product that is incremental and complementary to the existing Hulu service … For our advertisers, who allow us to keep our Hulu Plus price low with the support of ad revenue, we offer one of the world’s most effective advertising platforms, with the ability to speak effectively to users across a variety of devices, anywhere they happen to be.”

    Thanks for the response, one would think that with this 'premium' service you would be able to forgo those pesky, interrupting advertisements. I am unsure of this, but if Hulu is attempting to go after Netflix's or even YouTube's market share I strongly suggest they alter their advertisement delivery.
