Hulu Plus Rides To The Rescue Of Google TV?

Hulu Plus, the ad-reduced subscription service from Hulu, just dropped its price to $7.99 from $9.99. It just launched on the Roku box as well. It’s also on the iPad and a range of TVs. The company plans to push distribution to a wide range of devices, reportedly including Google TV. That would circumvent some of the problems Google has experienced with the networks blocking access to their content.

The combination of Hulu Plus for $7.99 and Netflix streaming for $7.99/8.99 will be sufficient to convince some people to drop their cable. That may be more challenging if it’s part of a bundle that includes phone and internet. Nonetheless, the widespread availability of Hulu Plus, providing access to movies and popular TV shows, will undoubtedly embolden many to “cut the cord.”
