Turns out, 88% of the shows available on hulu Plus are available on the free version. Guess it’s not so great after all. I received my hulu Plus preview the other day but was disappointed to learn it was ad-supported and still cost the monthly fee. Some preview. [via /Film]
There have been rumors since late last year that hulu was going to roll out a paid version of their amazing TV-killing site. It was supposed to happening at the beginning of 2010, but content has continued to be free since then. Now it looks as if they’ve finallized their plans with hulu Plus. From what I gather, this will be a service in addition to their free content. By paying the monthly fee, you’ll be albe to watch hulu using your TV, iPad, and iPhone. It’s not clear how the TV aspect would work except that a number of select televisions and Blu-ray players will be able to stream the content. Not sure how those who don’t own these devices would access it. But for me, the iPhone and iPad versions (which streams hulu on Wi-fi and 3G) are where it’s at. With hulu on Apple devices, the sting of no Flash is somewhat alleviated.
