It’s true. It’s here. Today, Hulu Plus has arrived on your Nintendo Wii. We are SO excited.
In our Evil(er) Plot to turn your brains into mushymush, we teamed up with one of the largest console partners in the world to bring your favorite current season TV shows right into your living room whenever you want. Nintendo has entertained millions of families for many years. With devices like the Wii and 3DS, Nintendo has earned diehard fans and loyal customers through its innovative approach to entertainment. And now together, we’re bringing a new level of world-class entertainment right into your hands and home.
Today, Wii owners can download the Hulu Plus app from the Wii Shop Channel and begin a new entertainment experience. We’ve optimized the Hulu Plus interface on Wii so you can easily point and click with the Wii Remote as you navigate through thousands of popular TV shows.
(Someone should probably let Cartman know that Hulu Plus is now available on the Wii.)
For $7.99/month, Hulu Plus subscribers can instantly stream current season episodes of hit shows like Modern Family, Dancing with the Stars, The Biggest Loser, Grey’s Anatomy and Glee. Kids can enjoy favorites from PBS Kids including Arthur, Dinosaur Train and Wild Kratts. Call it a family movie night and pick from hundreds of popular Miramax movies. For the first month of launch, Wii users without an existing Hulu Plus account will get a two-week free trial when they follow the sign-up instructions in the Hulu Plus app.
We are coming to Nintendo 3DS later this year, so stay tuned for that announcement. Until then, gather your family, friends and roommates around the biggest TV in the house and watch hit TV shows with your Wii. Enjoy!
