October 26th, 2011 by Johannes Larcher

We’re on a mission to make the world’s premium content available to people all over the globe. Thanks to our hardworking Japan team, today we are one step closer to realizing this mission.

Watching top films and TV shows on the biggest screen in the house just got easier for our subscribers in Japan.  I’m happy to announce that Hulu in Japan launched on Sony’s BRAVIA® HDTVs and Sony Computer Entertainment’s PlayStation®3. Notably, Hulu is the first non-gaming application to be distributed on PS3 in Japan.

With Hulu in Japan, Japanese entertainment fans have unlimited access to hundreds of premium feature films including Pirates of the Caribbean, Armageddon, Men in Black and Troy, and thousands of episodes from previous seasons of TV shows including 24, Bones, Criminal Minds, Desperate Housewives, Fringe, Grey’s Anatomy, Gossip Girl, Heroes, LOST, NCIS, Private Practice, Prison Break, and Ugly Betty for ¥1,480 per month.

Stay tuned as we announce more distribution partners to come!
