Hulu Plus was just announced by Hulu. You will soon be getting Hulu on more places than your computer. Expect it for iPhone, iPad (WiFi or 3G!), Samsung TV’s and Blu-ray players, Sony TV’s and Blu-ray players, Vizio TV’s and Blu-ray players, PS3, and Xbox 360. For 9.99 per month you can watch entire current seasons of TV shows already found on Hulu and with support on iPhone and iPad you can view that content anywhere you are.
Hulu is also giving you access to the back catalogue of older shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Arrested Development.
I’m going to be honest, I was excited for all this before I started writing this post. Netflix already gives me access to a very extensive back catalogue of TV and my DVR can keep me up to date on television this season. The question it now poses is this, can I drop TV completely now that Hulu Plus Exists. Having a PS3 in the living room streaming Hulu and Netflix may allow me to drop cable. Stay tuned…
Hulu Showing Live Programing
Hulu seems to have forgotten that it’s not television. Tonight at 9PM you can tune into Hulu (do you tune into the internet?) and watch Dave Matthews Band live. It’s pretty awesome. This is just another way by which Hulu is in the process of removing television from my life. I wonder if Hulu will be showing the Super Bowl next year. Now that would be crazy.
The important bit isn’t about drdrew. Microsoft already has Netflix being delivered directly to the Xbox. The addition of Hulu as well would be killer. It’s so weird that Microsoft E3 press conference is also on June 8th…

I glanced over this news on Friday, but I didn’t fully comprehend what I was reading until today. Disney (owner of ABC and several other networks) has put up the money and now has a 30% stake in Hulu, the same as News Corp (owner of FOX) and NBC Universal.
With Disney on board now you can expect to see Grey’s Anatomy, Better off Ted, and Hanna Montana breaking through to Hulu. Oh yeah and Lost. No word on if all seasons will make it to the service, or if the big D will be putting up one season at a time. Either way I will gladly sit through commercials in an extremely late attempt to start following Lost.
Hulu is the fourth largest video distributer on the web, behind YouTube, Yahoo and … wait for it… MySpace.
Numbers 1 and 2 I totally understand, Yahoo has been around forever and YouTube… well it’s YouTube, what more can I add. But MySpace? Really? There’s that much video content on MySpace?
