'Hulu Plus' headed to Xbox 360, PS3, iPad and more Hulu has announced today the launch of Hulu Plus, a premium version of the popular streaming site that will cost $10 per month.
Buyers of the subscription get expanded content, and the ability to play the shows on their HDTVs, Blu-ray players, Xbox 360 (with Gold subscription), PS3 and iPad and iPhone.

The PlayStation 3 is the first to get the service, starting in a couple of weeks, with the Xbox 360 getting the service in early 2011. HDTVs from Sony and Vizio will also get the service in "the fall."

Most importantly, Hulu Plus gives users season passes for most current shows, which is a massive improvement from only being able to watch the trailing five episodes of a given show. You will also be able to watch back seasons of the shows.

There are currently 2000 full TV episodes available for Hulu Plus, including older shows from the 80s and 90s.

On the downside, Hulu Plus will still be ad-supported.

For now, the service is in private beta. You can request an invite here: http://www.hulu.com/plus/invite

OK $10 bucks with ads. Hulu is on crack. Who wants to pay 10 bucks and see streaming ads. I'll stick with netflix.
