Hulu Plus Review – What You Need to Know About Hulu Plus

What is Hulu Plus? It’s one of the many monthly subscription services out there offering streaming movies and TV. Its popularity is off the charts with over 143 million of February of this year. Let’s get to the meat of it. You didn’t come to read this Hulu Plus review to read statistics. You want to know if it’s worth paying for when you get Hulu for free. So let’s get to it then, here’s my Hulu Plus review.

The Good

Hulu Plus on TV

If you have a new HDTV, Blu-Ray player, or Roku box you can watch Hulu Plus right on your TV in your living room. Just pick the app on the screen and let it go. If you already paid a lot of money for that nice HDTV you definitely want to get the most out of it. This is possible with Hulu Plus since it shows in Hi Def. This is s not an option with Just Hulu.

Hulu Plus on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and your Smartphone

If you don’t have a HDTV, Blu-Ray player or Roku box with Hulu Plus you can always still use Hulu Plus on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. Both systems have had recent updates to make this possible. Give you the same quality as the HDTV and Blu-Ray player.

Lots of TV Shows on Hulu

There are over 200 hundred different TV Networks on Hulu. I counted so trust me on this. I’ll let you do the math on the amount of different shows.

The Bad

Hulu advertising

There are a lot of commercials while you watch even though they promise less commercials with Hulu Plus. Personally I didn’t notice a difference at all with the TV shows. I saw no less than 4 commercials with each episode. There where commercials with the movies too and why are there commercials with movies?


The navigation compared to other subscriptions of streaming TV like Netflix it can be hard to find what you want at times. You’ll search for your favorite show or movie. Hulu Plus will find it, but it’s not the whole movie. It’s only a clip or trailer.

With the negatives being what they are they don’t outweigh the biggest positive. It’s only 7.99 a month which is cheaper than Cable any day of the week. Hulu Plus is definitely an enjoyable experience and worth your time and money.
