At the end of July I let you know about the official launch of Hulu’s “Plus” service, allowing you to stream their multi-network offerings through your Mobile devices, PS3… and soon many other devices. Since then I’ve had quite a few of you ask me… “is it really worth it?”. And that my friends is a great question!!
We found a research firm calling themselves One Touch who put together a pretty cool chart showing you what it is you’re paying for over the typical Hulu service (of course, this doesn’t include the fact that Hulu Plus is a huge bump to your mobile TV game… if you’re into that kind of thing. Not that there’s anything wrong with that). With iTunes likely offering up rentals in the very near future (read HERE if you didn’t know about this) I wonder if Hulu will have the staying power to keep this service at $10… especially considering it still includes ads.
The graph below offers an example of content comparisons… Hulu Plus offers 28,418 Full-length TV episodes (3,464 more than standard Hulu) and a graph that detailed would just be silly.
