Samsung and Hulu have agreed on a deal-an exclusive deal at the moment-that will make Hulu Plus available for download through Samsung Apps on select 2010 Blu-ray players, Blu-ray home theater systems, and the majority of 2010 Samsung TVs 40" and above.
The service will be available for $9.99 a month, as an ad-supported subscription service to offer full current season runs of hit TV programs from ABC, FOX and NBC across multiple Web-connected devices, in HD.
Subscribers will have access to shows like Glee, Grey's Anatomy, 30 Rock and The Office to classics such as The X-Files, Arrested Development and Ally McBeal.
Users who download Hulu Plus on Samsung Apps can watch sample content and request an invite for the preview of the Hulu Plus service. After the end of the preview period, all Samsung Apps users will be able to download and subscribe to the full Hulu Plus service.
"With the addition of Hulu Plus to Samsung Apps, our customers now have access to an ever-expanding catalog of premium HD content at the push of a button," said Eric Anderson, vice president of content and product solutions, Samsung Electronics America.
Hulu Plus joins more than 30 other industry partners on Samsung Apps including Blockbuster, Facebook, Netflix, Pandora, Twitter, USA TODAY, and Vudu.
