Hulu finally announces its plans for a premium subscription service called Hulu Plus that will cost $9.99/month. What will users get with the premium service that isn’t available with the free service? Well for starters, you will now be able to view every single episode of a TV series no matter what season and in full HD quality. Currently, Hulu only allows for a specified number of episodes per TV series with many of the older episodes unavailable for viewing.
Hulu will also be available for many other devices now and not just on your PC. Soon Hulu Plus will be available on the Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices for mobile viewing and will also be available for many home devices including the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3.
I’m actually quite excited about this especially with the option of being able to watch Hulu on my Xbox 360 or Playstation 3. If you are looking to save some money each month, you could in essence save quite a bit of money with this service. Many of the most popular shows on cable and satellite are available on Hulu so you could actually cut your cable/satellite service as well as your TIVO service since you can watch any of these episodes anytime you want. Combine this with a Netflix account and you have pretty much get all the movies and TV you can handle for less than $20/month.
