Hulu has added a few more platforms to its growing list of Hulu Plus destinations. As the company braces for the impact of its official public roll-out of the subscription-based experience, you can add Roku and TiVo to the list of hardware toys that will give you Hulu on your TV, for 10 bucks a month. Both of these set-top boxes are in need of a dynamic offering in the wake of a new Apple TV, and Hulu Plus might be a great start. With Hulu Plus already available on the iPad and iPhone, though, it can’t be long before it joins Netflix and becomes part of the anticipated and updated Apple TV. From a PaidContent report on the news:
The Roku HD streaming player, which starts at $59.99 and goes up $99.99, delivers hi-def video and features built-in wireless and Ethernet for easy broadband connectivity throughout a user’s home, while the more expensive models add 1080p HD support and extended-range Wireless-N. The streaming service already has agreements with Netflix, Amazon (NSDQ: AMZN) Video On Demand, Pandora, MLB.TV, and Ultimate Fighting Championship. Hulu Plus will be added to that lineup this fall.
TiVo, meanwhile, will also add Hulu Plus to its Premiere DVR subscribers over the coming months. It’s using the agreement to claim that no other box matches it in offering a mix of live and streaming video through its DVR service.
