When Hulu launched its Hulu Plus iPad app and video subscription service earlier this year, You and me were fighting to get one of the invitations to participate in the private launch. Hulu announced yesterday that Hulu Plus is now open to anyone for a $7.99 monthly fee.
This subscription fee allows subscribers get more programming choices and the ability to watch the shows on their iPad and other iDevices (including TV’s, Blu-Ray players or gaming consoles. Additionally, subscribers get more TV programming choices, and also have access to full seasons of their favorite TV shows as compared to only select episode availability. Hulu has reduced the original “invitation only” subscription fee from $9.99 to $7.99.
I have been using NetFlix on my iPad, and have been pretty satisfied in using it on my iPad, Apple TV and new MacBook Air. I can watch Hulu on my MacBook Air, but Hulu forces you to purchase Hulu Plus to view any video on your iPad.
What are your thoughts on Hulu Plus? Experiences?
