Hulu Plus found a new way to be streamed into your living room. Nintendo today announced it has teamed up with the streaming video service so that Wii owners can now subscribe to and access Hulu Plus for $8/month and instantly stream popular TV shows like Family Guy, Glee, The Office, Modern Family, and more, as well as hundreds of movies, on their Wii console.
"Wii offers the most entertainment fun for everyone in the family, with an impressive selection of streaming movies and TV shows in addition to an unparalleled lineup of games that can’t be played anywhere else," said Tony Elison , Nintendo of America’s senior director and general manager of Network Business. "The Wii console is the hub of the living room, and with the addition of Hulu Plus, millions of households now have even more options for streaming premium TV shows and movies."
Wii owners with a broadband Internet connection can access Hulu Plus by visiting the Wii Shop Channel and downloading the Hulu Plus app. Users who don't already have a Hulu Plus account will be eligible for a two-week free trial.
Nintendo also announced that Hulu Plus will be coming to the 3DS handheld console sometime later this year.
