Recently, we expanded access to the Hulu Plus preview to Hulu Desktop, a downloadable application that provides users with a lean-back viewing experience for PCs and Macs. In addition to Hulu Desktop, users can continue to access Hulu Plus via Apple’s iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and 3rd generation iPod touch (iPhones and iPod touches need to be running iOS 4), Sony’s PlayStation 3, and select Samsung Internet-connected TVs and Blu-ray players. In the coming months, Hulu Plus will also be coming to select Internet-connected TVs from Sony Bravia and Vizio, as well as the Xbox 360 in early 2011.
Hulu Desktop, which is one of Hulu’s most popular applications to date, features a user interface that’s optimized for remote control use, allowing users to navigate Hulu’s library with just six remote control buttons. For users without computer remotes, Hulu Desktop is also keyboard and mouse-enabled. For more information about Hulu Desktop, visit this site.
Hulu Plus, the first subscription service to bring current TV programs from top broadcast networks ABC, FOX and NBC to four screens — computers, mobile phones, TVs, and tablets — in HD, is available to U.S. consumers for $9.99 per month. Hulu Plus is currently available as a preview, during which subscriptions are offered by invitation only to ensure the highest quality experience for each Hulu Plus subscriber, and to responsibly scale the service over time. To request an invite, visit hulu.com/plus.
Even without an invite, consumers are welcome to download a free Hulu Plus application to the iPad, iPhone 3GS and 4, and 3rd generation iPod touch, and other supported devices to test the experience with a limited selection of free episodes and clips. Hulu Plus is expected to be made widely available to the public in the coming months.
