Hulu Plus comes to Apple TV boxes


Hulu, the online TV biz owned by Fox, ABC and NBC, said its $7.99-a-month premium service is coming to Apple TV. Customers can register by going to Hulu’s website or through their Apple TV, according to a post on the company’s blog.

Hulu lets users watch programs from most of the major U.S. broadcasters, as well as showing clips and movies. The Plus version gives customers access to more episodes and other features and works on a wider range of devices. The service features shows such as “Family Guy,” “Modern Family,” and “The Daily Show.”

It’s already available on Sony’s PlayStation 3, Microsoft’s Xbox 360, Roku devices and Nintendo’s Wii. It also works with mobile devices.

The closely held joint venture increased sales 60% to $420 million last year and has more than 1.5 million paying subscribers to Hulu Plus, according to Bloomberg Businessweek.
