Hulu Plus Available on XBox Live Beginning Tomorrow

Beginning tomorrow (a.k.a. Friday, April 29th), Hulu Plus subscribers will be able to stream the service’s content via XBox Live. Functioning similarly to Netflix’s downloadable XBox 360 app, Hulu Plus will also be compatible with the console’s Kinect motion sensor so that users can control video playback with the appendage of their choice. Per Variety, Hulu Plus’ $8/month price point will remain intact and the launch will simply allow current and future subscribers the convenience of partaking in the service through their 360 console.

In order to promote the launch, Hulu is currently offering new users a free week of their subscription service through May 6th. While I enjoy Hulu’s free service, I’ve yet to completely buy into Plus. Call me a skeptic, but I’m just not sold on the extra content being worth $8/month (although the 360 streaming is a nice start). What are your thoughts? Are you among the service’s near one million paying customers? If so, do your best to sell me on its merits in the comments section.
