Dear Hulu Community,
As a TV and movie buff, I’m excited to announce that as of today, Xbox is bringing you a brand new way to enjoy Hulu Plus content from the comfort of your living room. What makes it even better? No need to fish through your couch cushions to find the remote when you want to fast forward to your favorite action sequence or pause that TV show to grab a cold soda. With Kinect for Xbox 360, you can simply say “Xbox, pause” or use gestures to rewind, pause and fast forward your way through your favorite shows.
Joining an expanding catalogue of tens of thousands of TV shows, movies and sports, plus millions of songs, the addition of Hulu Plus gives U.S.-based Xbox LIVE Gold members and Hulu Plus subscribers the chance to instantly stream episodes of top shows and use their voice as the remote control. With a growing community of 30 million active members around the world and the only place to enjoy control-free entertainment, we can’t wait for you to experience Hulu Plus on Xbox LIVE.
It’s partners like Hulu that allow us to deliver amazing content, while also enhancing your living room entertainment experience through the power of Kinect. As Rob mentioned, you can even try Hulu Plus on Xbox LIVE at no cost between April 29 and May 6 thanks to our advertising partner, Jack Link’s Beef Jerky, who is sponsoring free access to all Xbox LIVE members (Free or Gold). It’s time to run that TV marathon party!
We’re looking forward to innovating further and the launch of Hulu Plus on Xbox LIVE marks just the beginning of what’s still to come. What will you be watching on Hulu Plus on Xbox LIVE this weekend?
General Manager, Xbox LIVE
