Hulu Plus headed to the Nintendo Wii

Nintendo Wii owners now have access to the Hulu Plus catalog of movies and TV shows.
For the standard price of $7.99 per month, Wii gamers can subscribe to the streaming service, which has current-season and back catalog of shows from ABC, NBC and Fox.

"Wii offers the most entertainment fun for everyone in the family, with an impressive selection of streaming movies and TV shows in addition to an unparalleled lineup of games that can't be played anywhere else," said Tony Elison, Nintendo of America's senior director and general manager of Network Business. "The Wii console is the hub of the living room, and with the addition of Hulu Plus, millions of households now have even more options for streaming premium TV shows and movies."

Adds Pete Distad, VP of Marketing and Distribution at Hulu: "We want to be everywhere, on every screen where people want to watch their favorite shows and discover new ones on their own schedule. Wii is not only one of the most important entertainment devices in the living room, but one of the most heavily anticipated and requested platforms by users and subscribers. Teaming up with Nintendo gives millions of households across the U.S. an immediate way to access some of their favorite current season shows on-demand in their living room through Hulu Plus."

As long as you have a broadband connection, head over to the Wii Shop Channel from your console and download the app for free. The first two weeks (for new subscribers) is free.
