Hulu FINALLY confirmed for consoles

It was never a question of whether Hulu would come to consoles, it was a question of when. And more importantly, how much. Well today, we have our answer: $9.99 a month is your price of admission to the newly announced Hulu Plus streaming service. Starting in July, Hulu Plus will include instant TV access for mobile devices, Blu-Ray players, web-ready televisions, and of course, your consoles! Click here for the official details.

Hulu showed the PlayStation 3 a lot of love, including mentioning it by name. So that, and the later release window specified for the 360, looks to confirm that the PS3 will be among the list of devices Hulu Plus will support immediately when it launches in July. It may not matter, since it looks like the subscription will allow access to multiple devices just like Netflix. Either way, it’s promising just to bring back the full seasons and entire series we all enjoyed when Hulu first launched, AND in HD when available.

There’s still no word yet as to when our European/Canadian brethren will be able to bask in the glory of Hulu Plus, but if I had to guess, it’ll be somewhere between when pigs fly and the US getting access to the BBC iPlayer.

Goodbye, five latest episodes! Hello, streaming 720p TV through HDMI! If you’re having trouble putting through a phone call right now, it’s probably due to the millions of people merrily canceling their cable.

    @cyberninja A year ago, Hulu decided to block PS3 users from accessing the videos via the PS3 web browser. Even though it has ads and I already have access to Hulu on my 360 at home (via PlayOn), I may get Hulu Plus when it comes to the 360. It also depends if I can access the non-Plus content on it.

    @ScruffMoney: I hear you. We'll at least we have Netflix, and ESPN to fill the void. ...Oh wait no we don't. :-/
  • beezn - June 30, 2010 3:21 a.m.

    The ads will still be there even though you are paying for the service, no thanks - I'll use HACK THE PLANET! (and all the gibsons)

    Daily Show and Colbert aren't on Hulu anymore?...I don't watch enough tv anyway. I guess I'll just have play through the Mass Effect series again.

    Very cool. Too bad the daily show and colbert aren't on hulu anymore

    @transmatrix but Netflix costs money outside of xbox and Hulu doesn't... at least not yet.

    Damn it, I just wish Microsoft would have got it right with the 360 the first time. I have had over eight xbox 360's, and it sickens me. Anyways, Hulu will be cool to have on the xbox.
  • lovinmyps3 - June 30, 2010 12:03 a.m.

    $9.99 is reasonable. If I watched more TV I would get it, but all I would watch is Family Guy and The Office probably.
  • sternparez - June 29, 2010 10:51 p.m.

    Uk anyone??
  • ScruffMoney - June 29, 2010 10:41 p.m.

    wish it was available in Canada...

    @KrubKrum we have to pay monthly for Netflix in addition to a Gold membership, so I would assume this monthly charge would be in addition, too.
  • Hydrohs - June 29, 2010 10:10 p.m.

    Are they finally allowing people from outside the US watch their stuff?
  • Cyberninja - June 29, 2010 10 p.m.

    cant u already watch hulu on ps3 anyway?
  • KrubKrum - June 29, 2010 9:58 p.m.

    Do you have to pay 10 dollars a month with the xbox? Because I read this from major nelson and he said it was for gold members only, so is it included with the yearly fee for gold? Or do you have to pay an extra 10 as well.
  • Transmatrix - June 29, 2010 9:56 p.m.

    $10 a month for what? Do I have access to more TV than I do via Netflix? What about Roku support? What shows, how many episodes, etc. I'm interested, but as you can see, I have questions...

    man that's awesome I wish they supported wii but i guess not, first
