HuluPlus now on AppleTV - How to get a 2-month free trial.

Cord cutters rejoice. Hulu have just announced that HuluPlus is now available on AppeTV. For $7.99 a month, billed to the subscriber's iTunes account, users can get access to content from top broadcast channels, such as ABC, NBC, FOX, The CW and Univision as well as many other content partners. Unfortunately, paying $7.99/month does not excuse you from advertisements; although, the shows claim to have “limited ads”.

Prior to the announcement, the only TV content available on AppleTV was via the iTunes store or Netflix. I’m sure Apple is getting a cut of the subscription revenue, but it’s bound to hurt sales of TV content on iTunes.

Eagerly, I fired up my AppleTV and gave it a try. Quality wasn’t bad: Hell’s Kitchen wasn’t quite as good as my over the air HD, and I can now get BBC America content, so I’m sold.

For those who want more than the paltry one week free trial on offer on AppleTV, follow this link to get two months free. Sign up and then simply select “I already have a HuluPlus subscription” when prompted on the AppleTV

Apple has long treated AppleTV as a hobby. Maybe things are changing in Cupertino.
