Roku today announced it was finally getting the Hulu Plus subscription service on all of its devices. The deal between the two had been in the works since September and comes as Hulu today made its own announcement that Hulu Plus was coming out of preview mode with a $7.99 monthly subscription, $2 less than it had been during its beta period.
Roku said customers can access Hulu Plus starting today.
Hulu Plus brings current programming from broadcast networks ABC, FOX, and NBC, to computers, TVs, mobile phones and tablets in 720p. It offers full current and back seasons of both current and classic TV shows to subscribers in the U.S. including Glee, Family Guy, Grey's Anatomy, Modern Family, 30 Rock, House, and The Office. Subscribers also can watch full series runs and numerous back seasons of shows like The X-Files, Arrested Development, Desperate Housewives, Battlestar Galactica, Monk, Psych, Saturday Night Live, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Ugly Betty, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and dozens more.
