Hulu Plus Makes its Way to the 360
posted Sunday May 1, 2011 by Nicholas DiMeo
Finally, after months of talk and seeing Hulu Plus pop in and out of Xbox Dashboard tiles, we finally saw that this week, Hulu Plus has made its way onto the Xbox 360. In a time where, Netflix is making all other competition look foolish, this is a perfect move for Hulu to try and get some attention.
Now, you can finally get your current shows from ABC, FOX, NBC, Comedy Central and more on your console which we'd hope by now is connected to an HDTV.
Currently, Xbox is offering a free week of Hulu Plus, which Jack's Links Beef Jerky is providing (weird), for anyone who signs up before May 6th if you don't already have a Plus account.
Here's what's also cool: Hulu Plus will be Kinectable right from the start. Enjoy waving and yelling at your TV to watch your latest Parks and Recreation antics right from your couch without the need of a controller.
Pete Thompson, GM for Xbox LIVE said,
We're proud to deliver the best in entertainment content like no other device in the living room. Hulu Plus is an important addition to support our continued effort to expand entertainment on Xbox Live. And by adding the magic of Kinect, we're truly transforming the way people enjoy their favorite entertainment.
I'm very curious to see if this gets Hulu out of the hole it was being thrown into.
