360 to finally get Hulu Plus

Written by David Stellmack

Will arrive on April 29th
After a long wait, Xbox 360 users will finally be able to use their consoles to take advantage of Hulu Plus if they are willing to pay $7.99 per month for it. Hulu Plus has been already available for a number of platforms, including the PlayStation 3, Apple products, TiVo Premiere, and a number of other consumer electronics devices.

The Xbox 360 will increase the amount of dazzle with the Xbox 360 style dashboard interface, as well as the search for programs, and add them to your queue. According to a number of sources we have spoken with who have tested the beta version on the Xbox 360 platform, it is all in all very similar to the Netflix interface that the Xbox 360 uses.

The jury is still out on how successful the Hulu Plus streaming pay service is. It is difficult to say how many people are willing to shell out the $7.99 per month for the Hulu Plus service. Still, if you do away with your cable and you still want access to your network shows and you can get them on Hulu Plus, this might be an option for some.

With the addition of Hulu Plus to the Xbox 360 platform, it is obvious that Microsoft is still pushing to make the Xbox 360 much more of an all around entertainment device, rather than just a game console, which adds far more value for consumers.
