Hulu launches paid Plus service, iOS devices supported


Online video service Hulu today announced Hulu Plus, a new $10 per month, ad-supported subscription service that offers users the ability to watch Hulu content on a wide variety of devices. Notably, the new Hulu Plus service will allow subscribers to watch any TV show from a sizable catalog, streamed in 720p, on the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, third-generation iPod touch, and iPad via the new Hulu Plus app. Writing about the announcement on the company blog, Hulu CEO Jason Kilar said, “I’ve been watching Hulu on my iPad for several weeks now, and I’ve watched more TV through the iPad than any other device.” The Hulu Plus service will also offer users access to more current full-length episodes and seasons than the standard service. Hulu Plus is currently in a private, invitation only phase, and will be opened up to all customers “as soon as [it’s] ready.”

I can watch this garbage for free on my TV and without ads if I tape it. I should pay $10 per month to watch it and watch ads ?? Are you crazy. This is a business model ?

I don’t want to watch it at all in case you’re wondering what my price point is. It doesn’t exist.

$10 is reasonable to me; especially if they get CBS on board this fall, as rumored.

Just in time for AT&T to discontinue their unlimited data plan.

G: I learned a little something when I got my iPhone 4 on Friday. You DO NOT have to switch to the new limited data plans unless 1) you just want to in order to save a few bucks, or 2) you want to use your device for tethering. I am not exactly sure how this works with the iPad (I don’t have one yet). But I am still under the unlimited plan for iPhone.

If you have an iPad and know for sure that you HAVE to sign up for 250MB or 2GB limited plans, please let me know. The Radio Shack guy sure made it sound like this was optional for all the iDevices unless tethering was selected.
