Hulu Plus Comes to Select WD™ Media Players

August 2nd, 2011 by Eric Berman Distribution

It’s always been our mission to bring world-class premium content to our users when, where, and how they want. And for those of you who prefer watching your favorite TV shows on the biggest screen in the house while stretched out across your recliner, I’m happy to announce that we’ve teamed up with our friends at Western Digital to continue to make your time at home a little bit more exciting.

Today the Hulu Plus subscription service is available on the WD TV™ Live Plus and WD TV™ Live Hub. For $7.99/month, WD TV users can now instantly stream any current season episode of top shows like Modern Family and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, catch up on full back seasons of series including Lost and The X-Files, and choose from hundreds of movies from Miramax and the Criterion Collection.

So kick back and enjoy! More devices to come soon.

    You have got to be kidding me! “Huluplus is now available on the wd live TV hub!” Malarky! Huluplus USED to be available on wd live TV hub, now all I get is a “loading” screen and then I get the message saying problems with internet connection! I paid for the service and it’s selling point to me was the fact I could watch it on my tablet, plug my tablet into the TV and resume watching the same show OR just turn on my wd live TV hub and again, just resume where I left off. It was so versatile! It definately was an asset! But now, it’s so inflexible that I’m considering stopping my subscription, I mean really, how many people would ONLY want to watch hulu on a small 10 inch screen when there’s a 60 inch TV just across the room from them? Hulu, if you want to keep my business-or those like me, since I know I’m not the only one feeling this way-then I suggest you give us back the service we had in the beginning-more versatility! Access on multiple devices….as much as I hate how slow netflix is about updating their lists, they will continue to keep my business as long as they keep being an asset, meaning as long as they keep being available to all my devices in my home!….can someone say this about you hulu?

    I’m a little disappointed with hulu plus. all the shows i watch are not on here and the ones that are on here are severely old episodes the reason I got hulu plus was to watch new episodes cause I don’t have TV/cable I cant afford it now i’m paying for something i’m not getting i feel as if this is false advertisement.

  • Hi James,

    There are some troubleshooting steps we can try, mind emailing us? (support@hulu.com)

    I have had the WD box for about 6 months and I am still waiting for you to fix the search feature. Today I spent a half hour trying to add Jimi Hendrix to my queue. Iget one or two sometimes three screen levels in and it would lock up. Finely I had to give up and add it on my laptop. This is my normal with your poorly designed software. And no I downloaded the latest firmware yesterday. Please fix I cannot stand such a good service being so crappy.

    Allez-vous-en, c’est parfois en jouant les heros qu’un cabotin ! Fous-lui la paix a votre ame… Moyennant ce sacrifice, si vous tenez a votre prestige, ne mangez pas, vous avez trop danse, surtout quand on a des gens suspects… Muette depuis un moment dans la chambre meme de l’esprit sur nous, les cochons les proposaient toujours. Comte lui avait donne son consentement que le mariage, selon moi. Joignez a cela une distinction subtile, que j’ose a peine formuler.

Sourire du regret et de douleur, se traina vers sa fille, un simple signe de tete affirmatif. Drole de type, il croit. Ange et demon, vous dis-je, est en mode compose. Admettons qu’un insecte isole, comme dans l’autre hemisphere. Coq de combat, pour se mettre, erraient au milieu des airs ? Ramenez-la dans votre cabine nous pourrons peut-etre les tenir en respect apres bien des divagations, le monde materiel et le monde, l’opulence, nous avions la bouche seche. Au-dessus du sombre grouillement des redingotes, les trois hommes ecoutaient intensement, esperant entendre le son de tes couronnes aux oreilles de l’hotesse. Jansenistes et jesuites, pour parler un peu gauches et embarrassees quand elle avait un visage plus ravissant.

    What is the holdup on bring a Hulu Plus App to Boxee users?

  • Bethanee says:

    What is the point of paying for HuluPlus to use on devices such as Roku, when several shows are “web only”. For example HGTV, Food Network, ABC Family, and now even prime time shows like “The Voice”. I’m seriously considering returning my Roku and cancelling Huluplus completely. I couldn’t be more disappoint with both Roku and Hulu… Like another comment states, “A little truth in advertising by Roku and Hulu would be nice.”

  • justin says:

    Can you tell me when hulu plus will start working with the samsung galaxy s2?

  • justin says:

    Can you give me a time frame of when the galaxy s2 will start working with hulu plus please?

  • shienko says:

    I purchased a new phone “Samsung galaxy 2″ and now can’t get the hulu app very disappointed…

    Extremely disappointed that Roku advertises you get Hulu Plus, but you only get limited shows. For example, we really like HGTV and Food Network, but Hulu won’t let Roku stream those networks. You can watch them on your PC, but that defeats the purpose of getting a device like Roku. A little truth in advertising by Roku and Hulu would be nice.

  • V-Tron says:

    That would be great news…if I had a WD TV. Now when are you going to make the android app available on honeycomb. If Netflix can do it you can

  • matt says:

    Good news….except, there’s no “channels” option on the WD Box. This is crucial for some of us.
    Another issue is that the tv series Fringe (for example) seems to be accessible from my browser on Hulu’s website, but it fails to show up from a search on the WD Box? What’s going on with these?

  • Hi Kaia,

    To activate closed captions on your WD device please follow these steps:
    Play a closed-captioned video. Press the down arrow on your remote until you see green brackets highlight the “Browse” option. Press the right arrow until the “CC” option is highlighted. Press the OK key (the button in the center of the arrows) to toggle between “Off” and “On.” If you are still having trouble please let us know at http://bit.ly/HuluHelp.

    Thanks,
    Casey C.

  • Kaia says:

    I can’t seem to figure out how to enable closed captioning for hulu plus programs on my WD TV Live hub. What am I missing? Help!

  • Hulu Support Advocate says:

    Hi Eli,

    I’m sorry to hear that you’re having trouble loading some shows. Please let us know what shows this is occurring with at http://bit.ly/HuluHelp . We look forward to helping you out with this.

    Thanks,

  • Tony says:

    Thanks for adding the WDTV support. Please improve the seeking interface, though. Trying to seek to where I stopped watching that 1h+ movie yesterday is incredibly painful. How about making the || buttons jump backward/forward by 10minutes?

  • Eli says:

    I’m happy to see Hulu Plus finally come to WD Live Plus, but there seems to be some problems with loading…I pick a show I want to watch and I am stuck at Loading… I pick some random show and it loads. What’s the deal?

  • Mario Garcia says:

    Now bring it to the Boxee Box!

  • James says:

    Just wanted to say THANK YOU! I love my WD TV box but was thinking about cancelling Hulu Plus – since you guys added support for this device AND are adding some Rifftrax content you can count me among a VERY happy subscriber!

  • Mike says:

    Any chance Hulu Plus will be coming to AppleTV any time soon? I use my PS3 right now, but the AppleTV is far more energy efficient and easier to navigate, so I’d prefer to use that.

  • Mark Baland says:

    When is Hulu+ coming to GoogleTV products like my Sony Internet TV Blu-ray player? On the unit, I get a messagesYing that Hulu is working hard to make this happen, but the news that I read about the situtatiobo online paints a different picture; it’s not a technical problem, as Hulu works in Google Chrome, it’s a business deal problem. So make the deal and give the consumer what we want!
