Hulu Plus coming to Xbox 360

 

We are happy to announce that Hulu will be coming to Xbox LIVE as part of their Hulu Plus experience. In the announcement today, Hulu announced a preview of their Plus service, along with a series of partners of which Xbox LIVE is one of them. We’re working hard on creating customized experience for Xbox LIVE members, which means that Hulu Plus will be coming to Xbox 360 in early 2011. We are taking the time to ensure that the Hulu Plus experience for Xbox 360 is the best on TV and like our other entertainment experiences it will not be a port, but rather a custom experience that leverages the Xbox LIVE community features.

 

Hulu Plus will be available for US Xbox LIVE Gold Members only.

    Will it be free to gold members or will there be a subscription for it?

    Really Gold only? That seems strange since this is suppose to cost $10 a month. Or will the pricing be different on the 360? How much will it cost?

    The plus means that you need to pay plus monies to get it.

    so it will be like Netflix of ESPN, where as PS 3 for netflix is more like a port, hopefully we’ll get to see the same features as Netflix or Zune marketplace with party viewing and of course Kinect voice commands.

    Looks like I can finally cancel my cable services. Netflix + Hulu + XBL Gold = way cheaper then cable.

    My guess is it will work like Netflix. We will be required to have a Hulu Plus subscription in addition to a Xbox Live Gold membership.

    Pretty sure you’ll need a Hulu Plus subscription($10/month) and an Xbox Live Gold Membership.

    $10 a month is dirt cheap. Considering that most people pay $75+ a month for cable/satellite TV, if they can get away with canceling that service and saving a bundle and still get the content (legally as well), I would sign up right away. However, I live in Canada and therefore these services will continue to taunt me.

    This is apparently available next month (July) for the ps3. Wonder why the rather large difference in availability?

    Why does Xbox get Hulu in early 2011 when everyone (even PS3) gets it in the next few weeks/months?

    Also, I have Netflix and don’t plan on getting Hulu Plus simply because I have cable. I would love to not pay for cable but I am forced to and this paying for Hulu is redundant. Also, Hulu doesn’t have The Daily Show or Colbert Report. I need the whole package if I am going to shell out $10.

    I was really excited about this until I looked into Hulu plus. It will cost $10 to have access to it. I have a Sumsung TV that is supported so I don’t even need my 360 but $10 is just too much to ask. Why can’t they use the same business model they use now and only store part of a season put a few ads in and give us access to that for free?

    This sounds about as useless as the facebook and twitter apps they added last year. I get some use out of last.fm but i don’t use that all that much. I’m not going to pay $10 a month on top of the $50 a year for gold to watch shows that i can get for free on my computer. If this was free it would be great but not everyone has the money to do this kind of useless nonsense. The feature i really want to see on the xbox is an internet browser. That would cater to all the people who desire youtube on the xbox. Really though if your going to add hulu also add the free version of it to for the people who don’t desire paying the monthly fee. There are still plenty of series that i can watch on the free one.

    I bought my 360 to play games, I already have a cable box.
    You guys need to get back to your roots and that’s gaming.
    Leave the motion crap to Nintendo and the T.V. watching to the PS3.😉
