Hulu Plus to offer access to network series

Preview available to guests; full launch due by year's end

Hulu has added the computer screen to its Hulu Plus preview product.

Hulu Plus, which costs $9.99 per month, gives consumers access to ABC, Fox and NBC shows that users of the free Hulu service do not have.

For now, Hulu Plus is available as a preview for invited guests while the company works out the kinks.

Hulu said Thursday it has added Hulu Plus to the Hulu Desktop so that shows may be watched on PCs and Macs, in addition to the other screens that Hulu Plus users have been using since the preview launched: iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, third-generation iPod Touches, Sony's PlayStation 3 and some Internet-connected TVs and Blu-ray players.

Hulu Plus is also coming to the Xbox 360 early next year and the service is expected to be offered to consumers at large by year's end.
