Hulu, as you know, is a popular online video service that offers ad-supported on-demand streaming video of TV shows, movies, webisodes and other new media, trailers, clips, and behind-the-scenes footage from NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS, Nickelodeon, and many other networks and studios. Hulu.com is free, and Hulu Plus is a ad-supported subscription product that is incremental and complementary to the existing Hulu service.
There are three key areas of difference between Hulu.com and Hulu Plus subscription service:
- Device access – Hulu.com is a free option for users who want to watch TV shows on their computers. Hulu is limited to the PC environment. Hulu Plus enables users to watch Hulu content instantly in HD (720p) to internet-connected TVs, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, set-top boxes, iPads, iPhones, and many other devices.
- Content – Generally, Hulu.com offers up to the last five episodes that aired on TV, while Hulu Plus generally offers all current-season episodes from popular shows, and full series runs (all episodes from every season), and dozens more. Hulu Plus is also the exclusive source for the most comprehensive library of the Criterion Collection archive with hundreds of acclaimed films.
- Video Quality – Hulu.com streams in standard definition, while Hulu Plus streams in HD when available.
