After rumors a few months ago about a preuium Hulu service, all was quiet for a while. Today Hulu announced their new service dubbed Hulu Plus. For the small price of $9.99 you can watch :
. . . all nine seasons of The X-Files. All three seasons of Arrested Development. Ten seasons of Law and Order: SVU. All five seasons of Ally McBeal. Seven seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and three seasons of Roswell. Every episode ever of Grey’s Anatomy and 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.
I also discovered that they have a few episodes of my favorite late night TV show, MST3K. Now one major thing that sets Hulu Plus away from Netflix is that the premium Hulu service will STILL have ads with the video, so your subscription doesn’t get you anything more than mobile access.
