Hulu Plus Now Available on Apple TV


Apple has quietly launched a Hulu Plus channel on Apple TV this morning. We've first received a report from one Apple TV owner who first found the channel to appear this morning and have since been able to confirm it ourselves. We've found that users may have to reboot their Apple TV for the channel to appear.

Hulu Plus is a U.S. online subscription streaming video service with support from many television networks and studios. The service has been notably absent from the Apple TV despite being available on the iPhone/iPad as well as other set top boxes such as Roku.

Existing Hulu Plus users can login, while new users can be billed for Hulu Plus service via their iTunes account.

Thanks Sami

Update: Hulu has issued a blog post announcing the addition.
Keeping up with the latest episode of Family Guy, MasterChef and New Girl on Hulu Plus just got a little easier. And my living room just got a whole lot happier.

Hulu Plus arrives on Apple TV today.

This is probably going to be the nail in the coffin for me to Cable TV in my house. I'll still be keeping cable internet but this is that last mile that I needed.

Well if you "cut the cable cord", you will not be getting HBOGo.

If they keep adding more channels they really need to allow us to remove them from the home screen if we have no intention to use them.

You really think once enough people have "cut the cord" cable companies won't raise your internet access rates to pretty much the same as getting their package deals? Enjoy it while it lasts, but just like the cell carriers they will just raise rates to compensate loss of income streams (no pun intended lol) :(
