Price Cut For Hulu Plus
Hulu Plus announced Wednesday that as it moves out of preview into official release, its subscription price will drop $2 to $7.99.
The service has also launched on Roku, in addition to PlayStation 3 and Samsung TVs; it is coming soon to Vizio, LG and Panasonic TVs as well as TiVo Premiere and Xbox 360, Hulu's CEO Jason Kilar announced in a blog post. The company is also offering free one week trials for new subscribers and two free weeks for current subscribers who refer a new subscriber.
"We’re highly encouraged by the response we’ve received to the Hulu Plus service during the preview period. Though the service has only been in preview for part of this year, Hulu Plus is already accounting for a material percentage of Hulu’s overall business," Kilar wrote.
