Know More About The Launch Of Hulu Plus 

Written by Craig Landon

With a solid Internet connection, there is nothing to stop you from streaming all the current TV shows and movies directly to your laptop or tablet or phone device via Hulu Plus! With a subscription of Hulu Plus, you can stream shows and movies without having to buy them. Competing with Netflix and Amazon Video, the launch of Hulu Plus raised many an eyebrow. Will this shiny new online streaming service wipe out its competitors from the show business? We have listed the five tremendously important things to know about Hulu Plus, and then you can make this informed decision by yourself.

At the top of our list is the cost of Hulu Plus. With trial period offerings that range anywhere between one week to one month, depending on the promotional runs, Hulu Plus starts at a modest price of $7.99 a month. If you wish to cancel your subscription after the trial period, you will be required to deactivate your account, which will wipe out all your bank details. If you wish to continue streaming videos, the same account will be used for monthly fee transactions until you decide to end your subscription. For reference, Netflix charges about the same for its most basic subscription.

To beat the August summer heat, Hulu Plus is keeping its viewers at home by offering some really good deals and promotional offers. Coupon codes for a minimum 30 day and 45 day free trial programs can be obtained. After you decide that being able to stream videos and movies online at the convenience of your mobile device is a thing that suits you well, after the trial period ends, you can move to their subscription plan of $7.99 per month. Hulu loves your friends too. Refer friends and if they like what you like, you and your friends can receive combined promotional rewards and offers throughout the year.

 

So is your Hulu Plus subscription limited to only one device? Of course not! Hulu has taken care of all your entertainment needs. If you love sitting in the family room with the big screen playing some of your favorite TV memories, surrounded by your family and loved ones, we have good news for you. Hulu Plus can be connected to your television set and you can stream all your favorite TV shows and movies to enjoy some TV experience. And the wonders don’t stop there! Your Blu-ray players, High-Definition TVs, and almost all your mobile devices including tablets and smartphones can be used to access the fun of streaming content online.

The next set of things to look at is the channels and shows Hulu Plus has to offer. The biggest and the oldest entertainment channel in the US, ABC produces shows such as Grey’s Anatomy, Modern Family, Desperate Housewives, and more that we have loved and adored. All of these can be streamed online and enjoyed on Hulu Plus. For those who are in love with music, your subscription will get you access to MTV’s Beaves and Butthead, Teen Mom 1 and 2, 16 and Pregnant, and MTV News. If you are a fan of Law and Order, Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and America’s Got Talent, you’re in luck because your Hulu subscription brings to you the best of NBC. Comedy lovers have something in this too. Comedy Central’s Stand-up and The Daily Show with Trevor Noah plus the cult favorite South Park, all hosted by Comedy Central can also be viewed on Hulu Plus. Hulu has also forged ties with Fox Entertainment.

Which means, you can get your fix of the dearly loved shows like Simpsons, Family Guy, New Girl, and Gotham. Phew! There is really a lot to watch on Hulu Plus. Let us not forget Hulu Originals, which started with the airing of The Morning After and was quickly followed by shows like The Mindy Project, Difficult People, and Chance.

The only setback in the competitive arena of online TV subscription, Hulu Plus lags behind in having an impressive movie catalog. While Netflix has spoiled us with the choice in movies, Hulu Plus comes up only a bit short in this field of competition. When it comes to pricing, Hulu Plus is almost the same as Netflix. Also, their collection of TV series is as broad if not more than the offerings laid out by Netflix.

So, what will you do? We have been discreetly told that people are opting for both subscriptions
simultaneously: Hulu Plus for TV dosage and Netflix for movies. What does your
informed decision look like?
