Hulu Plus hits Wii U in US

Video streaming service goes live on Nintendo's new console

HD Video streaming service Hulu Plus has arrived on Wii U in US today.


The Hulu service, similar to Netflix, delivers HD TV shows and movies from major TV networks via an online stream, for a monthly subscription fee of $7.99.

The Wii U Hulu app takes advantage of the console's screen-equipped GamePad by allowing you to sift through available video libraries while simultaneously watching a show on your TV.

It also lets you transfer viewing entirely to the GamePad for viewing without the TV.

Here's a video showing off the Hulu app in action.
