Hulu Plus dropping down to $4.95 a month (possibly)

According to All Things Digital, who received a tip from a good source, Hulu will be dropping its price down to only $4.95 a month from the original price of $9.95. I'm no mathematician but thats about half off!



Maybe this will spur an increase in Hulu Plus's use on home and mobile devices. Currently, Hulu Plus is available for Computers, Xbox 360, PS3, Some TV's and a variety of Apples products. Fingers crossed for the Android app, I bet it's on the way.

This shows a drastic change in media consumption methods over the last couple of years, with On Demand services being more, well, in demand. Hulu, Netflix, OnDemand, Tivo, and other services are gaining popularity for the ability to instantly watch most TV shows and Movies from a plethora of devices... could this be the end of TV? (probably not, given how lazy most people are and the recent unveiling of Google TV)

  1. How is Hulu Plus different from just regular Hulu? I remember going there a while back and watching things with a few ads in between (but for free).

  6. Until I can get Hulu on my Wii I wouldn't bother with it. I hate having to drag my laptop over to the TV to watch things. All the same, maybe if it becomes popular enough with this price drop they'll look at making Hulu available on a wider variety of devices.

  8. guys pay to watch tv series/movies on your pc is like killing your freedom to download/stream them.
    Don't kill the net with pay x view on pc.
