>Hulu Plus Finally Arrives on TiVo, New Owners Get 6 Months Free


Hulu announced Monday that its Hulu Plus service is finally available on the TiVo Premiere.
If, like us, this announcement is the cause for some deja vu, it’s because Hulu and TiVo originally announced in September that the service would be coming to the DVR/connected device. Eight months later, the two companies have finally made good on their promise.
Perhaps in a bid to entice would-be TiVo/Hulu Plus owners, Hulu is offering a six-month free trial to customers who buy a TiVo Premiere from Tivo.com or retailers until August 30, 2011. While we’re not sure that six months of Hulu Plus service is enough of an incentive to purchase a TiVo Premiere, it’s a nice gesture.
Since launching last summer, Hulu Plus has taken some lessons from the Netflix playbook, rolling out support for its subscription offering to a variety of connected devices, video game consoles, Blu-ray players and HDTV sets.
