Hulu today announced the launch of its new monthly subscription service Hulu Plus, which will enable users to watch TV shows through more outlets by paying a $9.99 per month fee. The pay service will also enable users to watch every episode of each show's current season, instead of just a few random episodes at a time. Here's an excerpt from the site's blog where the announcement was made by Hulu CEO Jason Kilar.
Hulu Plus is not a replacement for Hulu.com. Hulu Plus is a new, revolutionary ad-supported subscription product that is incremental and complementary to the existing Hulu service. For almost all of the current broadcast shows on our service, Hulu Plus offers the full season. Every single episode of the current season will be available, not just a handful of trailing episodes. Now there's never a bad time to jump in on a hot new show like Modern Family (which I recommend highly). From Family Guy to Glee, from The Office to 30 Rock, from Grey's Anatomy to Desperate Housewives, from Parks and Recreation to Parenthood, from House to Saturday Night Live, and dozens of other hits, the best time to jump in on any series is any time, and with any episode, that's right for you.
As a Hulu Plus subscriber, you'll now also have access to back seasons or full runs of some of TV's greatest shows. All nine seasons of The X-Files. All three seasons of Arrested Development. Ten seasons of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. All five seasons of Ally McBeal. Seven seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and three seasons of RoswellRoswell. Every episode ever of Grey's Anatomy to Desperate Housewives. Classic skits from the first five and most recent five seasons of Saturday Night Live. The list goes on. This is all on top of hundreds of shows already on Hulu.com today. It's a treasure chest in the cloud for TV lovers.
The new subscription service will also enable users to watch content on their iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and web-enabled televisions. You can watch a new intro video to this service below for more information.
