Apple TV finally gets Hulu Plus

Apple TV finally gets Hulu Plus Hulu Plus has now been made available via the Apple TV set-top box.
Hulu says you will be greeted by a Hulu Plus icon on the Apple TV home screen from which you can login or register.

The streaming service costs $7.99 per month, but Hulu regularly offers 1 month trials for free to first-time users. If you register through iTunes via the set-top, you will get a 1 week free trial to test the service.

Be reminded that unlike Netflix, Hulu Plus offers episodes from current seasons a week after they air for most content or even the next day for some other content. With that positive comes a negative, however, as Hulu Plus has ads, even though you are a premium subscriber.

The service has content from ABC, Fox, NBC, CW, Univision and more.

Took them long enough, but like everything else 'Apple'... the pricing seems steep. I was under the impression that Hulu Plus was about half that if you went straight to them say, through your bluray player or game console.

I don't use the service & seeing as I'm not in the mood to be nickel and dimed by entertainment services repeatedly for the remainder of my life, I don't foresee myself buying into another Netflix or Hulu (again) soon either... Thus I apologize for my negligence in even bothering to look up the pricing options for the service.

Just seems to me they're going to fill it all up with adds & BS like the free air stuff eventually anyway & then screw the paying public just as hard as satellite & cable have.
