If you are the owner of an Apple TV you might have noticed something when you turned it on this morning. Overnight it appears as if Apple has added Hulu Plus to the Apple TV. Whats interesting is that the new channel isn’t made available through a new software update but through simply restarting the Apple TV.
If you are not yet a Hulu Plus user you can sign up for a one-week trial, or if you already use the service you can log in with your existing account .
For those unfamiliar with Hulu or Hulu Plus, it is a service in the United States that allows viewers to watch TV shows and movies from some of the biggest networks and studios including Disney, NBC, ABC, and Fox. As of 2011 Hulu Plus had 1.5 million users.
Unfortunately however Apple TV users outside of the United States will not be able to take advantage of the new Hulu Plus channel, just like they can’t access the website version either.
