Boom goes the dynamite. Online content streaming service Hulu is now serving Xbox 360's and the Xbox Live network. It sure took them long enough, but hey! The first week is on them! Yes, that's free! Hulu is offering the Hulu Plus service free for an entire week for all Xbox Live users, silver or gold, Hulu subscribers or not! Usually this sets you back the price of an Xbox Live Gold account and an $US8/month Hulu Plus subscription. Nice.
Even better, Hulu works with the Kinect! Yes I'm serious- we're talking voice and gesture recognition to stream movies and television shows. Hello, the future of remote controls.
