Hulu Plus app comes to Windows 8

03_selecting_resizeHulu has announced on their blog that they have now released a Hulu Plus app for Windows 8 “Modern UI”.

The touch-optimized app can access all of Hulu’s shows, including its back catalogue, and has the ability to pin favourite shows to the start screen. It also supports Snap view, which lets viewers watch video on one part of the screen while they do something else on another part.

The app will be preloaded on select Acer and Sony Windows 8 tablets.

For everyone else with Windows 8, the app can be found in the  Windows Store here

          all this means is that Microsoft is going to roll it out with a grand entrance of apps on Friday. No surprises here.

      I am on RTM and can’t access the app, says no longer available. Same story on Windows 8 RTM and Windows Server 2012 RTM.

    Next is for it to come to Windows Phone. This should be easily done with a line or two of code since Windows 8 and Windows Phone both have the same core.

      Agreed but that is only true for Windows Phone 8, not Windows Phone 7.8 and below.
