Thanks to a sizable collection of updates, anyone who’s been wanting to try Hulu Plus can now do so, and anyone who hasn’t might want to reconsider his (or her) opinion. This morning, Hulu made Hulu Plus more accessible, and, for some people, cheaper.
With its limited selection of content, still-present ads, and price of $9.99 per month, Hulu Plus doesn’t appear to have been a hit so far. Now, however, there’s a rumor Hulu’s going to see what sort of interest there is at the price point of $4.95 per month.
